Read MacKenzie’s Story

Mackenzie Short is 18 years of age and was recently diagnosed with Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (Wegener’s).

MacKenzie wanted to put her heartfelt story on our website to highlight her experience and journey with Vasculitis in order to support awareness, encourage early diagnosis and encourage support for Vasculitis research.  May is the International Vasculitis Awareness month and we are grateful to MacKenzie for sharing her story with us and for her support of Lauren’s Vasculitis charity.
