A Face: To Remember

I have witnessed people speaking about their loved ones who had A.S. and thought they should also have a place to be honored or remembered. If you have a loved one who had A.S. and you would like to submit their story or just their picture. Please do. This site is for those of the past, present and future. I would be honored to include any loved one that you wish to add to this site. Thank you all so much.

Our goal is to have ONE THOUSAND faces… There is strength in numbers.

To be included please contact Cookie at  Cookiehasas@aol.com    We are also on twitter. @FacesofAS

The requirements  to have your face included on this site are:

You must have  Ankylosing Spondylitis.

You must include a picture of yourself.

You are welcome to provide only a picture, many pictures or a picture along with a story, poem, quote, whatever you wish to share about your life with Ankylosing Spondylitis.

This project doesn’t have a deadline and you are free to add or update anytime you wish.

  1. What a cool Blog! Thank you, Cookie! I was diagnosed with AS in 1988, but the rheumatologist said I probably had developed it sometime around age 11. I am now 53, and, to my knowledge, have not fused vertebrae yet, but the osteophytes in my spine are huge, and I have a lot of nerve compression, but I continue, by the grace of God, to stand straight and teach 6,7,and 8 graders how to sew and design! Sadly, both of my children (male and female, both adults) are presenting with symptoms, but neither will acknowledge it yet. It is a hard pill to swallow. Bless you all. You are all in my prayers here. It is nice to have your faces as I pray. :O)

    • Dear Dee,
      I am so glad you like the site. You are most welcome, it has been such a heart warming project for me. I look forward to adding your face soon!

      Sincerely Cookie

  2. I’d like to say that my Dad had A.S. among many other arthritis’. He wasn’t diagnosed will he was mid-age, they told him he was to young to have arthritis. (This was at least 50 years ago) Every vertebrae and bone in his neck and spine fused together before he was diagnosed with A.S. He walked with a slump so it caused heart problems early and he passed away when DRs could no longer help at the age of 56.
    I have been diagnosed with A.S.
    Thank you!

  3. Thanks Cookie for the web blog. I always feels I am crazy with the weird
    things my body is going through and then I find someone else has the same symptoms and I feel better. Take care.
