The Charles E Holman Foundation Cindy Casey-Holman is a Registered Nurse with nearly 20 years 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.
Cindy has written several articles on the subject of Morgellons and has appeared on multiple local and national television networks including programs for the Discovery Health Channel, Inside Edition and the Rachel Ray Show. In 2011, Cindy completed work with an award winning Japanese film crew to create a documentary on Morgellons Disease which aired in Japan on January 28, 2012 on Fuji Television Network’s prime time program titled Science Mystery.
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 LymeDisease.org formerly known as CALDA. Cindy has been an associate member of ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases) since 2006.
