I just want Kelly to know that I think you truly are a beautiful girl with a wonderful spirit. The world can be cruel if it isn't educated. Keep sharing your story so that people can understand this disease and accept those that live with it. Don't allow the world to beat you down. You truly are a beautiful person.

Name: Sherry Location: Virginia E-mail: email@example.com Comments: Hello, my name is Sherry I live in Virginia and I read an article about Kelley and thought what a brave little girl she is an how strong her parents are. I know what it is like to have doctors think something is trivial about certain ways our kids look but we know them and can look at little things and know something is wrong. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org contact me anytime that you need to talk. I have had 3 children my 2 boys were born with too numerous illnesses to mention and a little girl who is 9 now. My boys are deceased. I will be praying for you all.

Name: jessamyn Location: california E-mail: email@example.com Comments: I have been having very odd and very painful symptoms for some time with no answers. i found a great docotors' office and becasue my symptoms have worsened (to look at) they have now come up with Rombergs. You all are so wonderful to post all of this info and your personal stories and so much rang true for me-the pain, tingling, dark mark on right cheek, cheek indentation, migraines, jaw pain, wavy vision at times, shooting electric pain in cheek,reynauds, elavated ANA?? and a constant active virus in the blood? I was beginning to feel crazy until I found this site and saw that numerous people had all of these symptoms as well. I feel very scared and very alone and would love it if anyone would respond to me. I will also email the two email addresses this site provided. I would love to know if anyone knows of a doctor who is familar with rombergs in CA, preferrably in northern CA. Thank you all -Jessamyn (29 yr. old female-symptoms in face began in 2003)

Not for the syndrome itself, however it seems terrofying *or however you may write this word*, but for all the boys & girls who couldn't accept the way she looked. i really hope the best for her and all the other patients!

Our 19 year old daughter is diagnosed in March 2005. Two weeks later she told us she 's pregnant. So: a very moving period in our lives! I will try to tell our story on the parent's part of this site, soon.

Name: Beverly Location: Santa Cruz, Bolivia E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Reading an article in a magazine that was given to me I learned that the condition I've had for nearly 70 years actually had a name. In all the medical care I had throughout many years no doctor ever suggested that it had a name. I am thrilled to know there are others who understand what it's like.

I just want to say, that Kelley, YOU are beautiful, and I am glad you guys got out of that crappy town. I wish I had the chance to let some of those kids know how simply ignorant they were being. I am glad to have read your story, and to gain more knowledge on this rare disease. I know you grow to do great things, more than you have accomplished already! Good luck in all you do!

Name: Trish Location: Portland, Maine E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: My daughter Beth is 14 and was diagnosed with Rombergs 5 years ago. It seems to have stopped progressing, after about a 9-10 year progression. She is doing great, has a boyfriend, is entering a terrific all-girls high school in the fall, and is an artist, writer and all-around fantastic person. She refuses plastic surgery because she feels her face is "special" and she was created this way for a reason. We couldn't be prouder of her and if anyone out there would like some support from either her or me, please feel free to write! her e-mail is email@example.com.
And for parents of newly diagnosed children, keep this in perspective. I know it seems devastating but when we were going through the MRIs and the CT scans, etc., I saw many children with cancer and realized, their parents would pay to be in my position. It's all relative....

Name: Loretta Location: WV E-mail: lorettaslanding@AOL.com Comments: I too was so touched by Kelly's bravery and courage, as told in the R.D. article. It is so appalling that kids can be so cruel. I taught special ed for 25 years, but I don't think I ever experienced seeing such maltreatment as was described. I am so happy you are in a great, new school, Kelly. Good luck. My prayers are with you.

I am 17 & I just graduated high school, and I am appalled at how you were treated at your old school. Our students could be mean, but we never teased students like outcasts. I am SO happy for you to be in a school now where you are happy, comfortable and treated like you should be. It was very courageous of you to share your story with Reader's Digest. I have a lot of respect for you, Kelley, and wish you the best. You are a beautiful, brave girl and you will do well in the future.

I hope heaven is treating you right, we'll have to catch up sometime and you can show me around the joint..:) I wish you were still here, life is going pretty well. Jim (our other brother) and I and our wives went on a cruise this February and we both agreed that the only thing missing was you..:) You would have loved it and it definately lacked your presence. We are off to the Mayan Riviera in June, if you get any time off up there and come haunt us for a day or two, please stop by..:) I miss you Terry, My life is no where near the same without you in it. You were always an anchor to me, you gave my life a solid base. You were one thing that never changed and never put up false fronts. I miss you.. All my love....Your brother... Greg
