Relapsing Polychondritis Disease Takes Another Life

Relapsing Polychondritis Disease Takes Another Life


relapsing-polychondritis-patient-diesThis Minion is for you Gary.

May you R.I.P.


As I scroll through the Relapsing Polychondritis Group online site, I am saddened to learn of the passing of Gary.

I will miss reading Gary’s comments, input, and suggestions.

Gary recently had been in and out of the hospital trying to control his health.

Gary had the disease Relapsing Polychondritis.

The Relapsing Polychondritis that flared within his body caused his health to decline.

About Relapsing Polychondritis (Health Reference)

Relapsing Polychondritis is a rare autoimmune disease that causes the body to attack and destroy its cartilage.

Similar to many diseases some people can halt Relapsing Polychondritis with particular medications.

Unfortunately, Relapsing Polychondritis can be extremely aggressive and fail to respond to drugs.

Gary enjoyed showing his feeling through Minions.

This HypoGal Blog post is my tribute to Gary.
