An example of a VF Heroes card

Nominate your Vasculitis Patient or Care Partner Hero

Vasculitis is a challenging to diagnose.  It’s hard to explain to family and friends what it is like to live with this disease.  Each patient has their own story to tell.  During Vasculitis Awareness Month, the Vasculitis Foundation endeavors to share the patient experience so others may learn from it.

Ordinary people can become extraordinary in their journey through life — and this has never been truer for people living with vasculitis.  Look around and you’ll see that there are everyday heroes living among us.  During Vasculitis Awareness Month the VF will be highlighting a few of the many everyday heroes from our vasculitis community.

This year the VF has offered a second option for nominations – Care Partners!  Often times the unsung hero dedicated to improving the journey for someone living with vasculitis.  It could be your spouse, your child, your parent, your neighbor, a colleague at work. . . hopefully you have someone there to walk with you on the journey.

Together, the VF will celebrate the impact patients and care partners make for the greater vasculitis community throughout 2023.

Nominate someone who has inspired you on your journey or consider nominating yourself to celebrate the successes in your journey.

APPLICATION DEADLINE:  February 28, 2023, 11:59 p.m. Eastern
