Jokiva Bellard

Lupus Community Advocate Jokiva BellardHello, My name is Jokiva Bellard also known as indianrosee. I was diagnosed with systematic lupus at the age of seventeen and ever since it has been a hard walking journey. I chose to become an advocate after realizing their were people just like me. After suffering two kidney failures at such a young age I realized that being happy would make me live a much longer life. I believe in helping others overcome and achieve a disease that is believed to take over your life. At the age of 25 I am now a soon to be mother and that was something I overachieved believing that I couldn’t do it.
