Harold Ramis' death puts vasculitis in the spotlight

Transient

Earlier this year the writer, director and actor Harold Ramis sadly died from complications resulting from vasculitis. The Chicago Tribune shed further light upon this family of autoimmune diseases in an article that is well worth reading.

The Tribune talks to Joyce Kullman, executive director of the Kansas City, Mo.- based Vasculitis Foundation, and Dianne Shaw, a retired communications director from Chapel Hill, N.C., who has Wegener's granulomatosis.

While the death of Harold Ramis is tragic, we can only hope that his death will help to put Wegener's Disease and vasculitis in general, in the spotlight.
