Do you have a special doctor who helped you obtain your Vasculitis diagnosis in a timely fashion? Wouldn’t it be great if you could formally recognize that doctor and let them know how valuable they were on your road to early diagnosis?
The Vasculitis Foundation (VF) gives you a great way to recognize those doctors that put all the puzzle pieces together and solved the mystery so that you could get the proper treatment for your Vasculitis.
The application process is not hard to complete (it can be totally done online)and the feeling of joy to have your doctor recognized is amazing. How do I know this? I nominated my Asthma Doctor for the very first VF Red Award and when he received the award I was thrilled to be able to present this award to him in a surprise ceremony in front of his peers. The look of total surprise and honor on his face is something I will never forget. The VF gave me the chance to show my doctor how amazing he was in making an early diagnosis and helping me obtain a better outcome because of it.
So, why not show your diagnosing doctor how much they mean to you and how much they have positively affected your life by making that early diagnosis?
The hardest part for me was only using 350 words to tell the VF about my diagnosis journey and how amazing my doctor was in making that diagnosis.
