Nephrotic syndrome is a type of disease that hits a person’s kidneys. Along with damage to the kidneys, a person with nephrotic syndrome is almost always diagnosed with Lupus as well.
Lupus is a disease wherein a person’s own immune system attacks other cells mistaking them for bacteria and viruses that need to be fought off. This means that the body of a person with lupus attacks its own body causing a weak immune system and could eventually lead to death.
As a concerned netizen as well as a good friend, Facebook user Rhina Montero Morales used her Facebook account to ask for help for her friend Jalen Jane Pascasio.
According to Morales, Pascasio was diagnosed with kidney nephrotic syndrome lupus. Her photos show a very ill Pascasio with an enlarged stomach, lying down on a hospital bed.
Morales said that she and Pascasio became friends when Pascasio was only 18 years of age. Despite their age gap, the two of them immediately became friends because Pascasio was easy to get along with. She told everyone how bubbly and hardworking Pascasio was.
She was even able to witness Pascasio doing her school work before and she expressed how she admired the young girl due to her dedication in the things she does.
She eventually mentioned that the young and quirky image of Pascasio is now gone and has been replaced with an image of a weak and suffering woman.
