Our Official New Partner

This morning Donna Batdorff, co-founder of the National Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation, approved our formal partnership with her organization. This association will allow the money raised and the awareness created by our campaign to be funneled to the NNFF so that they can continue their effort to bring NF to the forefront.

This new relationship will also help us to spread our message throughout the patient, practitioner, survivor, and lay communities with tremendous momentum.

Thank you, again, to Donna and all the those in the NNFF community.

By the way, you can pick up a copy of Donna's book, the seminal volume on necrotizing fasciitis, here.

Weekly Zen Moment

"Even if our efforts of attention seem for years to be producing no results, one day a light that is in exact proportion to them will flood the soul."

Weekly Zen Moment

Everything is burning. The eye is burning and visible sights are burning. The ears and the sounds they hear are burning, the nose, the tongue, the body, the mind. With what fires are they burning? With fires of greed, of hate, of ignorance, burning with anxiety, jealousy, loss, decay, and grief. Considering this suffering, a follower of the way becomes weary of the fires, weary of greed and hate that fuel the grasping at sights, sounds, smells, tastes, body or mind. Being weary, one divests oneself of this grasping and by the absence of this grasping one becomes free.
