The Teen Mom star's mother, Roxanne DeJesus, took to Twitter on December 8th to reveal that after a series of blood test, she had been diagnoses with lupus.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that currently has no cure.
'They weren’t kidding when they said it takes series of test to be diagnosed with lupus,' Roxanne captioned a photo of a stack of blood samples. 'Thankful and grateful that I’m feeling so much better.'
Roxanne regularly makes appearances on the MTV hit reality series, and has a positive relationship with her daughters, Briana and Brittany, and her grandchildren who all live with her.
Briana, who is dating Kailyn Lowry‘s ex Javi Marroquin, shares daughters Nova, 6, with ex-boyfriend Devoin Austin, and 5-month-old Stella with ex-boyfriend Luis Hernandez.
