We should all be grateful we are alive today. I say that to myself every time I hear of an unexpected death or tragedy, and that was certainly the case today when the Rockets announced that coach Kevin McHale’s daughter, Sasha McHale, passed away from Lupus at the tender age of 23.
Prayers and condolences to Coach McHale and his family … RIP Sasha

Lupus is one of he most confounding diseases on the planet, with no known cause and no known cure. Chris Wilcox of the Boston Celtics has tried to spread awareness of the disease after losing two aunts to Lupus and learning of his sister Tehesia’s diagnosis as a 17-year-old high school senior.
What exactly is Lupus?
Is is nicknamed “Cruel Mystery,” and with good reason.
