My purpose is to start a non profit organization to help bring awareness and education about the disease of Necrotizing Faciitis.

I am a Necrotizing Faciitis survivor, aka "Flesh Eating Disease". I lost part of my lower left leg due to this horrific disease. It is my desire to start a non-profit organization to bring awareness and education, while offering support to the victims and family members that have and have yet to suffer from Necrotizing Faciitis. When I think of my goals, I think of the very first victims of breast cancer and other once infrequent diseases and how they must of felt. They most likely felt like me and my fellow NF survivors do, "Alone". I desire to bring awareness and education to the community about this devastating disease, through advocacy in our communities, schools, hospitals and local venues. I also want to start support groups across the US to provide victims and their families a tool in the process of suffering with NF. This disease is not going away! It's only going to get worse. Please help me in my efforts to bring awareness, education and support about and for those who have suffered and will suffer from NF. May God truly bless you, ~ Karen Dilucente
