Cindy Casey-Holman, RN

Medical Advisory Board
Austin, TX
Executive Director


Cindy Casey-Holman is a Registered Nurse with nearly 20 years of experience in critical care and specialty training in open-heart surgery and organ transplants. She held a position as staff nurse and relief charge nurse in the MSICU (Medical Specialty Intensive Care Unit) at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, CA
for 16 years prior to becoming disabled with Morgellons Disease in late 2005.

Having been diagnosed with Delusions of Parasitosis at UCSF Dermatology Clinic, Cindy and her husband, Charles Holman, quickly became activists to empower Morgellons patients through medical education and scientific research. Their foundation, originally titled The New Morgellons Order grew quickly and became a
501c3 non-profit organization as outlined by the federal government in 2006.

Following the untimely sudden death of her husband in 2007, Cindy added the title “The Charles E. Holman Foundation” (CEHF) to honor her loving and supportive husband, the organization’s founder. Cindy assumed her late husband’s role as Director and the organization has continued to expand. Today, The Charles E.
Holman Morgellons Disease Foundation, based in Austin, Texas, has become the leading source for credible information on Morgellons Disease as well as the primary source of funding to further scientific research. The foundation’s ultimate goal is to determine the cause and cure of Morgellons Disease. The CEHMDF hosts the annual conference on Morgellons that provides a respected venue for medical and scientific experts to speak on a variety of topic surrounding Morgellons.

Cindy has written several articles on the subject of Morgellons and has appeared on multiple local, national and international television networks. These include programs for the Discovery Health Channel, The SYFY Channel, Inside Edition, the Rachel Ray Show, The FUJI-TV Network in Japan and RAW-TV from the UK which aired both in the US as well as Europe and Australia on The Science Channel.

Cindy has been a member of AACN (American Association of Critical Care Nursing) both locally and nationally since 1990. She has maintained membership in ANA (American Nurses Association) for several years. Cindy is on the Medical Advisory Board of TXLDA (Texas Lyme Disease Association) and is a member of formerly known as CALDA. Cindy has been an associate member of ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases) since 2006.
