No Cure~But Hope

Very honest and frank work on living with lupus. Despite the health problems caused by her disease and the necessary drugs, Neva is hopeful and moving on...what a brave young woman. We never know what health problems people deal with everyday~this is a lighthearted snapshot of Neva's life while living with a chronic illness. Would love to hear more of her story. Great narration by Meww Gomez. Highly Recommended....
