Toni Braxton reflects a year after a life-threatening complication with lupus

fter landing in emergency surgery, singer and survivor Toni Braxton urges the public to “get uncomfortable with lupus.”

From singing on global stages to sold-out crowds to having to remain vigilant about symptoms of the autoimmune disorder systemic lupus erythematosus, Toni Braxton is familiar with uncomfortable situations. So it’s hardly a surprise that when asked to join Aurinia Pharmaceuticals’ Get Uncomfortable With Lupus Nephritis campaign, she seized the opportunity.
