Who is She's Got Lupus?

Rosadela Durruthy, founder, Shes Got Lupus

Born and raised in San Diego, CA I was diagnosed with Lupus SLE at the age of 23 in 2007, after two years of back and forth doctor visits dismissing my symptoms.  Throughtout my 15 year battle with lupus I have been told by doctors that my body is shutting down and yet still by the grace of God I am here to raise my three children. 

My favorite phrase is “She’s got lupus, lupus does not have her”. 

I started Shes Got Lupus as an outlet for me to speak freely about my struggles with mental health and lupus. The more I spoke about it, the more people approached me to say that hearing someone else experiencing similar situations has helped them through their lupus journey. So I decided to be more vocal about lupus and turn my pain into my purpose. Shes Got Lupus non profit organization speaks at as well as hosts both lupus and mental health awareness events. 

I got my life coaching certification in 2022 in order to help others with chronic illnesses reach their full capability. My goal is to be able to provide empowerment sessions to those struggling with a chronic illness diagnosis.
