Answer

Necrotizing fasciitis has become sufficiently common in the United States that a National Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation has been formed. The cofounders of this foundation are survivors of necrotizing fasciitis. The goals of this foundation are to increase awareness about necrotizing fasciitis, to educate the medical community, and to help save lives from this often misdiagnosed, rapidly fatal disease.

The Foundation’s Web site has stories about survivors of necrotizing fasciitis with color photographs. The Foundation provides a list of journal articles as well as 8 brief reports on necrotizing fasciitis that can be downloaded at no cost.
