In 2007, Kiara had a blood clot and stroke. On November 4, 2008 she was diagnosed with lupus SLE and has been handling the ups and downs of the disease for 11 years. One of Kiara’s daughters, Shyla, is only 9 years old and is already doing so many positive things. Shyla is a smart and outgoing lupus advocate, supporter, and model. She has been doing lupus photo shoots since 2015. Shyla has been a big supporter in Kiara’s life while wanting to make a difference in this world. Kiara feels blessed to have Shyla because she reminds her that no one is in this fight against lupus alone. There is no “I” in lupus, but there is an “US.”
