Vasculitis is a "family" of disease which inflames the blood vessels, arteries, veins or capillaries. When such inflammation occurs, it causes changes in the walls of blood vessels, such as weakening and narrowing that can progress to the point of blood vessel blockage. Some are also diseases of the autoimmune system, which becomes overactive and attacks parts of the body, leaving scars and lesions behind.
The Jedi Assembly is a worldwide fan-based group for Star Wars light-side Jedi costuming enthusiasts. It is the intent of the club to further enhance the Star Wars fantasy by recreating Jedi costumes for our enjoyment as well as others. The club encourages screen-accurate Jedi costumers as well as novice costumers to join and share their knowledge with others."
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
