Five years ago, Nicola Kalby was diagnosed with a rare inflammatory disease of the veins called “Wegener’s Granulomatosis”, which began to change her appearance.

The said disease had seriously affected her ears, nose, kidneys and lungs, while in the last time Nicola had lost her hearing and speech.
After battling this strange disease for five years, Nicola Kalbi, who once considered herself beautiful, cheerful and avid traveller, lost her battle for life after spending the last years of her life confined to a house.
