Ashley Martson, star of the hit reality series 90 Day Fiancé, has had an ongoing battle with the autoimmune disease Lupus for several years. The reality star spent last Christmas in the hospital after she had a flareup, and has since undergone surgery for kidney failure and opened up with fans about her struggle with the disease.
Martson revealed in late November, 2018 on her Instagram page that she suffers from lupus, or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). On Christmas Day, Martson posted a picture to her Instagram stories taken from her hospital bed, captioned #lupussucks. Her ex-husband Jay Smith also posted a photo of himself beside her hospital bed, although Smith’s Instagram account has been set to private in the wake of the deportation rumors.

The Company’s lead compound, Lupuzor™, a potential treatment for Lupus, has completed Phase 3 trial of dosing patients across the US, Europe and Mauritius with top line results announced.
