The Faces of Ankylosing Spondylitis
"Our goal is to have ONE THOUSAND faces… There is strength in numbers."
Update: The Faces of AS featured in our Winter 2012 issue of Spondylitis Plus!
Faces of Ankylosing Spondylitis is a website dedicated entirely to the stories of those with AS. As of this writing over 600 stories have been published on the site, and more are being added regularly. Men, women, and children from numerous countries and continents have shared their stories and photos, and we will be sharing them here with you, one by one, with our gratitude to all. You can read all of the stories on The Faces of AS Site - http://thefacesofankylosingspondylitis.com
"It was important for me to do this, not for myself, but for each one of the Faces on this site and those who are still unknown. I wanted to show the reality of this disease and the courage it takes to live our lives. I wanted to honor those who have Ankylosing Spondylitis, who I admire and respect."
