Shop4Vasculitis 2017 & Why I’m a Vasculitis Awareness Advocate

Hey Mamas,

With Thanksgiving behind us and kicking off the holiday season, I can’t help but think about the one element in my life that is missing – my dad.

As some of you know, if you’ve been following me for any length of time, I lost my father, Ilya Peckerman, to a type of vasculitis disease on December 18, 2009.

I’ve gone through various emotional roller-coasters dealing with life without him, dealing with his physical absence from my children’s lives, dealing with the void of such an energetic personality, dealing with why him, and dealing with the what ifs.

What if we took him to get more opinions about his strange sinus issues?
What if we took him to a vasculitis center at a major hospital?
What if he wasn’t taken off prednisone so soon?
What if  the miracle, new meds were cleared for use while he was still alive? (we were sooo close!)

I’ve turned my what ifs, why me, and emotional roller coasters into a passionate commitment to support the vasculitis community and bring awareness to this group of rare, autoimmune disease. (Click here to learn more about vasculitis diseases.)

Once again, this holiday season, I ask you to consider selecting your holiday gifts from Shop4Vasculitis, a gifts that give back campaign.
