Stuff About Me:

I contracted MRSA after ankle surgery in Dec.,2000, it entered my bloodstream and bone marrow. I became critically ill and nearly died. I founded MRSA Survivors Network in 2003 and was the first patient advocate to raise the alarm about MRSA and healthcare-acquired infections in the US.  I also initiated and helped pass ground breaking Iegislation in Illinois that mandated MRSA reporting and screening. I founded World MRSA Day, Oct. 2 and World MRSA Awareness Month, October in Jan., 2009 to raise global awareness to the MRSA epidemic.
