Tim Raines

Complaining of extreme fatigue and water retention, professional baseball player Tim Raines stepped off the field and into a doctor’s office in 1999 and learned he suffered from lupus, and that the disease was attacking his kidneys. The left fielder underwent radiation therapy and medication until his condition improved. He returned to the game in 2001, playing for the Montreal Expos, before retiring in 2002 with the Florida Marlins.
