Alyssa Robb, 21: “For seven years now, I have been struggling with this incurable disease. With no known cause and no known cure, my journey with lupus has been — and will continue to be — a difficult and frustrating one.” … “People often praise me for my strength & courage and they ask me where it comes from. My ability to remain strong and positive comes from an answered prayer. Many years ago, I asked God to give me faith. At the end of October 2010, he finally said yes. With that faith, I have gained patience and wisdom. When I compare my problems with others', I find that I have too many blessings to count!” Photo by Johnny Wilson, Wilson Photography
