My name is Dede. Living with Vasculitis means to me that our son, Austin is living! Diagnosed at 13 years old on December 23, 2010, he has come a long way and that is such a blessing. He is now a 15 year old Sophomore that is doing “normal” things such as going to church, hanging out with friends, swimming on the Chapin High School Swim team, playing video games and will get his driver’s license in a few months when he turns 16! Yes, he does have to remember to take his medication every day but overall, he’s doing well. Thank You Lord!
