“RP The Ride of My Life”

This powerful documentary about Nancy and her family’s journey through many years of struggling with painful and debilitating symptoms with an unknown cause, eventually being diagnosed with an extremely rare autoimmune disease, Relapsing Polychondritis (“RP”), and ultimately finding the strength and courage to persevere with a purpose to raise awareness about RP, help others in diagnosis and support, and advance research efforts about this and other autoimmune diseases in pursuit of treatments and cures.


When it comes to how the rapidly spreading coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting people with vasculitis, medical experts agree there are more questions than answers – at least right now.

To address that concern, the Relapsing Polychondritis Foundation, the Vasculitis Foundation (VF),  and the Vasculitis Patient Powered Research Network (VPPRN) have teamed up with partners in the Autoimmune Research Collaborative (ARC) to launch a new COVID-19 patient study.

We want to know your concerns.  Please participate in the patient research survey: Autoimmune and COVID-19.  Your participation will help researchers, clinicians and other patients better understand how people with relapsing polychondritis and other forms of vasculitis are dealing with COVID-19 / the novel coronavirus.

To get started, please go to: www.vasculitisfoundation.org/rp_vasccovid-19/
