A Labor Of Love
A Labor Of Love
The Faces of Ankylosing Spondylitis Information Board was the vision and creation of one person. Over the years I have watched the AS community step up in every form or fashion to offer information and assistance to any of us in our time of need. The out pouring of this community has never ceased to amaze me, but what I noticed over time, is that we struggle to locate the information that was shared. I worked as a directory assistance operator for twenty plus years and thought it would be awesome if the AS community could have something like that. So while I was “patiently” waiting for the new Face of AS to arrive. I decided to join the pro board forum and see what I could come up, that was in November 2011. I spent a couple of weeks working on it and decided it was just too much. Then I remembered I am not a quitter, I finally completed it in July of 2013. My vision is to make information available that will help people improve their quality of life and future. My hope is that you will adopt your area; it is such an easy way for us to help each other. I appreciate the way the community has stood beside me, encouraged and believed in me. I wanted to publicly say thank you to the Nurses in the Infusion Center at Baylor Medical Center in Houston Texas, for giving me suggestions and encouragement over the past two years, without your compassion this vision would never have become a reality.
With all my love and respect, from one AS Survivor to another.
