Family Learns Lupus Can Be Managed

One would stay in the hospital room, showing a strong face for their daughter Tessa, while the other took to the hallway to safely shed their tears.
 
“I was praying it wasn’t going to be lupus,” said Bobbie Clark, Tessa’s mother. “We know it could have been worse, but a 12-year-old — you don’t want to think she’s got a lifetime disease that can get worse or become fatal at any time.”
