Surviving the "Flesh-Eating Bacteria": Understanding, Preventing, Treating, and Living With the Effects of Necrotizing Fasciitis

by Jacqueline A. Roemmele, Donna Batdorff, co-founders of The National Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation (

The best book about NF that I have read. I owe my emotional healing, in part, to this book. I've even sent copies to friends, relatives and other Necrotizing Fasciitis Survivors.

My NF was caused by MRSA bacteria I acquired from my father. Dad acquired MRSA, C. DIff, VRE and other infections while hospitalized. MRSA has NO CURE. If you learn to control it can go into "remission" and the outbreaks become fewer and less severe. Many people have it and do not know it because MRSA can lay dormant for years. It's a very serious threat to society and to our health care system. Here are some books you may wish to read:

Hospital Infection: From Miasmas to Mrsa

MRSA and Staphylococcal Infections

MRSA-Killer Bug. What you need to know to protect yourself

MRSA - Spider Bites: The Flesh-Eating Bacterial Epidemic That Threatens America

Viruses vs. Superbugs: A Solution to the Antibiotics Crisis?
