‘It’s a fight’

Lupus Alliance provides support for local patients

Deana Fellows suffered in silence for 18 years before she discovered the Lupus Alliance of Upstate New York. She attended the Lupus Alliance’s “Walk Along for Lupus” in 2007 and found the organization to be full of “wonderfully embracing people.” Now, Fellows is a member of the group’s board of directors. Diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder at age 23, Fellows, who lives in Marcellus, said she doesn’t care much to talk about her illness, but she realized that opening up about her story helps other people with lupus know they’re not alone.

Enjoy yourselves but don’t forget the library is still here to provide shelter from a sudden shower, free Wi-Fi and the chance to make your life better than it’s ever been.
