Cookie The Faces of AS

Patient Leader

I am the creator of The Faces of Ankylosing Spondylitis. I created this web site to allow those who suffer with the disease Ankylosing Spondylitis to know that they are not alone, there are people out there that care. I wanted a place where we could come together not only to raise awareness, but to share the reality of this disease and the courage it takes to live our lives. I wanted to honor those who have Ankylosing Spondylitis, who I admire and respect. I wanted to do my best to change how society and the medical profession sees this disease and to hopefully make it easier to be diagnosed, for me personally I wanted to make something beautiful out of my own battle with A.S. and when my battle was over, I wanted to be able to say I did my best to make a difference.
