[lastfm]Snoop Dogg[/lastfm], the beloved rapper who is known for being upbeat and light hearted discusses his daughter’s illness and the heartbreaking diagnosis that sent his family down a difficult road that began with many unanswered questions.

To find out more about his family’s battle read on…

The first sign that his daughter Cori, who was 6-years-old at the time, was not well was the appearance of a light spot on her face. Then weeks after the spot appeared, young Cori’s symptoms grew worse and she suffered severe weight loss and her hair began to fall out.

Frustration grew after the family took her to many doctors that performed countless tests, but offered no answers. His wife Shanté discussed the difficult process, “”No one could tell me what was wrong. They drew tons of blood and said she has old-person cells. They gave her all kinds of [medication]. But she went downhill.””

During an emotional interview with PEOPLE Snoop said, “I felt helpless.” “No power, no friends.”

It wasn’t until months later that Cori was finally diagnosed with the autoimmune disease lupus. The family was then able to begin the road to understanding this disease and what Cori is going to be fighting for the rest of her life.[pullquote quote=”She’s on the honor roll, playing volleyball and softball, living life.

      it is a joy to know that Mr and Mrs Broadus decided to stay together and work as a family to help their precious daughter and she learns to cope and continue to enjoy her childhood and with God, and Mom and Dad and her brothers and other family and friends support the Broadus family,this health condition cori contends with, will be much more easier to deal with.
