(BlackDoctor.org) — Singer and songwriter Toni Braxton, who has been battling several illnesses over the past few years, had a scare recently and checked into the hospital.
The Braxton family stated in a recent screening of their TV show on the WE network that Toni had a setback with her fight against Lupus and thought to admit herself to the hospital.
“Everyone knows she has lupus,” Towanda Braxton said. “She had a minor scare and went to the hospital to run tests and make sure everything was okay.”
Facts About Lupus
• Lupus is an autoimmune disease.
• Your body’s immune system is like an army with hundreds of soldiers.
• The immune system’s job is to fight foreign substances in the body, like germs and viruses. But in autoimmune diseases, the immune system is out of control.
• It attacks healthy tissues, not germs.
