For weeks, Hannia felt sick and lethargic. By the time she came to Children’s Colorado, she could barely walk from the pain and exhaustion. Hannia was diagnosed with Lupus, a chronic, incurable autoimmune disease. Hannia was immediately put on steroids, and she began doing regular infusions at Children’s Colorado to help calm her immune system. Three years later, she still has flare-ups that cause her severe pain, but she manages her condition with strength and a positive attitude.
