Sara Gorman was diagnosed with systemic lupus at the age of 26. After four years of fighting life, rather than living it, she made it her top priority to start living well, despite lupus. This book details the steps it took to reach that goal. A native of Indiana and graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Sara resides in Alexandria, Virginia with her husband, daughter, and two pug dogs. She continues to blog about living well with a chronic illness at www.despitelupus.com.
