Jenny Haverty’s daughter developed symptoms of an unusual skin disorder with fibers in 2004. In March of that year, a local SF Bay Area news channel aired a news story following the case studies of a small cluster of people who had symptoms of fibers in skin lesions. She met Cindy Casey, RN, who had the disorder, and two other sufferers. Together they began a small study attempting to analyze these unusual fibers. Unable to determine their composition, these samples along with a detailed report were submitted to Randy Wymore at Oklahoma State University for further analysis. Her daughter’s disorder continues as we hope for a breakthrough in understanding this disease. Jenny Haverty serves as a volunteer on The CEHF Scientific Advisory Panel.
