Although the world is full of suffering,
it is also full of the overcoming of it.
Welcome to The Faces of Ankylosing Spondylitis.
This Site Is Dedicated To
Some Of The Strongest People
You Will Ever Know
It is time to let our skeletons out of the closet and let the identities of the awareness ribbons be known!
I am a follower of the Scar Project that represents the reality of cancer, courage, strength, and hope.
This site is dear to my heart, because I have lost many loved ones due to cancer.
I also have a disease known as Ankylosing Spondylitis.
I have decided to do a project that shows our reality and what our lives are really like.
My vision is to collect twenty seven hundred plus faces on this site.
I hope you will take the time to read what these courageous and wonderful people have decided to share with you.
It takes extreme courage to reveal one’s truth.
This site was started because of one man’s courage to show his “truth.”
My dear friend Kevin Andrews.
