Raising awareness isn’t just a one month annual event. This year we are expanding our original Vasculitis Awareness Month through the end of the year.

Our theme is centered on Dreaming Big to positively affect the lives of patients with vasculitis.  But dreaming isn’t enough—action is needed to achieve our goals of early diagnosis, more effective treatments, and a cure for our patients!

Below are some resources and tools to help you educate and inform your family, friends, and co-workers about vasculitis!  Thank you in advance for your participation in this important activity!

Here’s how you can make a difference….

Watch. Share. Make Aware!


What does the future look like to young adults with vasculitis?
Be inspired and encouraged by the positive comments from patients who aren’t letting vasculitis get in the way of their life plans.


What is the one thing you wish people knew about vasculitis? Watch this new video created especially for Vasculitis Awareness Month 2018 where patients from around the world answer that question and teach us about the impact of the disease on their lives.


“When is a horse actually a zebra?”  The answer to that riddle gets to the heart of the issue of helping to educate the medical community so earlier diagnosis can be made.  Watch and share our new video, “Connect the Dots” with your doctor, and encourage them to share it with their colleagues.
