Meet Starlight Kid Shawna. Shawna was diagnosed with Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) when she was nine years old and it causes her to bleed and bruise easily. A few years later, she was diagnosed with lupus, a chronic, incurable disease where her immune system is constantly attacking her own tissues and organs. Shawna must go in for chemo immune-suppressant treatments every six months.
Despite living with two autoimmune diseases, she lives a very full life. Shawna’s favorite activity is horseback riding! Starlight programs help her maintain a sense of normalcy when undergoing treatment in the hospital.
