In the year of 2006 on September 11, at the age of 16, he was diagnosed with a sickness called (S.L.E.) Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, class V Lupus Glomerulonephritis with ‘Kidney Disease’ Nephritic Syndrome. Systemic Lupus affected both of his kidneys which almost killed him. A lot of people don’t live long with this sickness; like his great grandmother (Kenneth was born on his great grandmother’s birthday) – who lived only a couple of month before she passed away. Kenneth still has this sickness today.
In the year of 2006, Kenneth was in the hospital often. He went through a lot of surgeries; the first surgery he had was on his kidneys – The results came back and that’s how he found out that he had Systemic Lupus. This sickness is rarely found in males but it’s a very dangerous illness. Hair loss, swelling of the body [He had some much fluid inside of his body that he couldn’t urinate with taking a water pill], back pain, mouth sores, headaches, low stamina, muscle pain, can’t stand/walk for a long period of time and depression are a few of the side effects that Kenneth had to deal with and is still dealing with. Kenneth is in pain every day of his life but he thanks Jesus for giving him the strength to deal with the pains. Every since Kenneth Weal was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus, it changed his life around in a very positive way and that’s the only good thing that came from this sickness.
