Congratulations to Samuel Wood, Recipient of the 2015 L.I.F.E. Awareness Award

On behalf of World Lupus Day, May 10th, L.I.F.E. is excited to announce Samuel Wood as its first recipient of the L.I.F.E. Awareness Award. Sam’s battle with lupus manifested with the iconic malar rash and progressively got worse to the point it attacked his joints and kidneys. After months of aggressive medical treatment, Sam entered remission and since then vowed to use his second chance to give back to the medical system. Despite his music degree from Berklee College of Music, Sam will begin medical school this fall. “I want to be a doctor to further the lineage of care and instillment of hope that transformed my life as a terrified patient desperately searching for solid ground.”
