According to the Mayo Clinic, vasculitis involves the inflammation of the blood vessels causing the walls to thicken, reducing the width of the passageway through the vessel.

If blood flow is restricted, organ and tissue damage can occur. There are many types of vasculitis, and most of them are rare.

‘You don’t really appreciate it, until it’s gone.’ admitted the human rights activist. 

‘Until you go, “I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to see again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to hear again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to walk again”.’ The actor said it took him a year to build up his strength.
