Description

It started with blood clots in the lungs. If Tony waited a day or a couple of hours later, his story would’ve been very different. This week’s episode features Tony Sosa from Southern California who discusses his diagnosis with Lupus and Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome (APS). Due to his Lupus symptoms (the butterfly rash, joint pain and fatigue), Tony had to stop working in the fire fighting industry and his job in the kitchen. He quickly realized the importance of community support, as well as reading and learning about his diagnosis. Natasha discusses how she learned about her disease — through her parents — and how this process changed over the years. Natasha and Tony dive into their similarities in terms of the plant based lifestyle change they have both incorporated in their lives. Finally, Tony talks about the up sides of living with Lupus, specifically being able to give others hope about their disease through initiatives such as Take a Pain Check and the Lupus Foundation of Southern California.
