Shanali Perera says:
“I am a contemporary artist, educator, retired Rheumatologist, and a person living with vasculitis, based in Manchester, UK.
I am doing a walking challenge to fundraise for Vasculitis UK, to support my Vasculitis community. As well as raise awareness on Vasculitis, globally together with our extended family of Vasculitis communities around the world”.
