I was diagnosed with Cryoglobulinemia Vasculitis apx. 8 years ago among many other diseases that are autoimmune and connective tissue disease in nature including Scleroderma, Sjogrens, and Raynauds. Due to these diseases, I have attempted to turn the negative into a positive by joining Second Chance with Saving Grace and developed Cryoglobulinemia Vasculitis Organization in which I am now the director of. I am also a board member of EAC council of the Vasculitis Organization. Most importantly though, I am a wife of 22 years and mother of 2 teenagers that I homeschool while we travel full time with my husbands work.
