Nick Cannon and Other Black Celebrities With Lupus
Shortly after turning 6, Cori Broadus, the daughter of rap icon Snoop Dogg, showed troubling symptoms: She was losing weight dramatically and her hair started falling out. Months later, Snoop and wife Shanté Broadus learned their daughter, now 12, was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease. "She's the toughest little thing I've ever met," the rapper said of his little girl in a 2010 interview. "She's on the honor roll, playing volleyball and softball, living life. She has all this joy. In the beginning lupus was winning. But now Cori is."
