When autoimmune disease strikes, entire families are affected. Toni Braxton, 52, was diagnosed with lupus in 2008. At the time, she had to conjure up a way to carefully explain to her young children why she’d been in and out of the hospital for months.
“I remember having to tell my kids that I have lupus. It was difficult,” Braxton tells Prevention.com. The “Long As I Live” singer said her sons Diezel and Denim didn’t understand why their mom’s own immune system was attacking her perfectly healthy cells to make her sick. “I remember that feeling. He cried and said, ‘mommy’s ok,'” Braxton recalls her son saying.
