Lark Voorhies is opening up about her ongoing health battle.
On Thursday, the Saved By The Bell alum revealed she's been struggling with lupus and took to Instagram to share her story.
The 41-year-old posted an image of an open letter to the disease. It began by confronting the illness for all the trouble it has caused her, saying:

But the brunette beauty explained that she's fighting back against the sickness, adding:
"However, you forgot when you planned your war. I am more than my work. Relationships worth having heal [or] stand steady under attack. I continue to rise again and again to reinvent myself.
