Child’s crisis brings Dogg house closer

Youth Impact Report 2011: Looking Ahead - Junior Journos

Although you probably don’t recognize Cori Broadus by name quite yet, you’ve surely heard of her father: Snoop Dogg. Like her dad, the 12-year-old rising star loves to sing and act. She even hopes to win a Grammy one day.

But having a famous father isn’t the only thing that sets Broadus apart from other young singers. Since age 6, she has been battling lupus. Rather than let the condition bring her down, Broadus recently wrote a song called “Love Heals It All” that is designed to raise awareness about — and money for — lupus. In her words, the song is about how “having people that love you is what can heal you.”

Because of their shared interest in music, “I was already close to my dad,” Broadus says. But dealing with lupus has also brought her closer to her mother, Shante, who joined the board of Lupus L.A., a family-oriented organization that creates support groups for people battling the condition.

Together with Shante, Cori was inspired to launch the Cori Broadus Lupus Foundation to help others — proof that even though bad things happen, there are ways to stay positive and make a difference. “I had my family to depend on, and they were there through all of it,” she says.
