Vasculitis is a family of about 26 separate rare autoimmune diseases, but all related, within the larger family of about 115 arthritic diseases and is not contagious, Behcet's Disease is one of these. Vasculitis is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the blood vessel walls, thereby reducing the blood supply and causing tissue and organ damage, which can lead to a variety of symptoms, pain and even death. Vasculitis is more common than you think, and can be considered an invisible illness.
Behcet's Canada and The Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC) are run solely by volunteers. Their purpose is to assist and educate patients living with rare and life-threatening vasculitis diseases. Our volunteers also focus on patients, assisting them to care for and take control of their disease, but also to encourage and support research efforts to identify the cause and cure of all types of vasculitis.
Our team goal is to raise $2500.00 CAD. or more
This is why our 11th Annual Behcet's Disease “26 Reasons” to walk event is so important to us, and why we’re asking for your HELP to Erradicate it, by asking you to make a donation today. Every dollar counts towards our investment in patient research, awareness, and education, so that every adult and child with the disease can live to the fullest, and ultimately one day be cured!
