Hidradenitis Suppurativa Support Online

What is HS?  Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a debilitating, chronic, complex inflammatory illness, also referred to as an immune-mediated inflammatory illness and follicular occlusion. It has a huge impact on quality of life physically, mentally, and emotionally. HS consists of extremely painful reccuring abscesses that can develop anywhere hair follicles are found.  It is possible to experience abscesses or lesions anywhere on our body with the exception of the palms of your hands, soles of your feet, and lips. HS is not contagious. There are three Hurley stages used to determine severity.  There is no cure for HS and the options for treatment are limited.

HS Connect is excited to team up with Whitaker Redgate and his company, Musbane Films, to share this Kickstarter campaign!  Whit is on a mission to share the pain of HS with others and help them understand what it's like to live with this disease.  He covers many topics having to do with pain, depression, PTSD, etc., all covered in this short intro clip. 

We've all asked to be heard and we have an opportunity to help with that.  Please donate if you are able, and if you can't please share so that someone else may be able to donate.
