Since the age of two, Sneha, an engineer working in Texas, had been admitted to hospital frequently for stomach issues. At three, she developed a rare skin condition, lichen nitidus, all over her body, which stayed with her for years, and whose cause remains unknown. At five, she developed severe asthma and frequently needed nebulisers. All through school and college, simple tasks like eating and doing homework were like “moving mountains”.
As if these debilitating conditions weren’t enough, at age 15 she developed the first juvenile case of vasculitis in the US. A team of doctors took two years to find a partial solution (costing her parents US$100,000) that gave her temporary relief. Vasculitis has been called the “pain disease” because of the extreme and constant pain it causes.
