CHRISTMAS will be extra special this year for Goulburn City Swans’ Leigh Quade and his family after he was given no guarantees that he would live past April this year.
Overall it took six weeks to diagnose the 32-year-old, with Wegener’s Granulomatosis, a form of vasculitis that attacks the lung and kidneys.
The rest of this article is here.
My notes: Welcome Quade to the fold of WG survivors. Actually six weeks is a relatively short time to diagnose WG. For some patients in our discussion group, it took decades for a firm diagnosis. Thankfully we are getting the message out about this dangerous chronic disease.
