National Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation

home_animationThe National Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation. They were the first and remain one of the best, if not the best, resources on Necrotizing Fasciitis, the flesh-eating bacteria. From their site:

Founded in 1997 by two survivors of necrotizing fasciitis, Jacqueline A. Roemmele, of Watchung, New Jersey, and Donna Batdorff of Grand Rapids Michigan.

Together, because of the lack of reliable information regarding the disease, it became their mission to do what they could to fill the void of information and to offer support for other victims and their families. What has since evolved in the past fifteen years of our existence has been truly inspiring and humbling. Hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life, from all over the world, have reached out to the foundation when NF invades their lives. NNFF is the leading source of information available about this deadly disease, and has brought together hundreds of people who find kinship, support, and comfort in each other. They are proud to be fulfilling the foundation’s mission to make a difference in the understanding, awareness, diagnosis, and treatment of necrotizing fasciitis.
