Judy’s Story

Judy Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP).  In this extraordinary vasculitis story, Judy talks about living with Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP), also known as anaphylactoid purpura. Judy not only was diagnosed with a rare disese, but one that typically affects children (an incidence of approximately 13 cases per 100,000 children per year.)

You’ll learn how the vasculitis specifically affected Judy—causing renal failure that necessitated a kidney transplant.

Judy also talks about her source of positive energy called a basket of hope and the role it played in helping her get through the worst of the disease.
