The Ehlers-Danlos Society was originally established as a non-profit organization in the USA in 1985 as the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation (EDNF) by Nancy Hanna Rogowski (1957–1995). The Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation (EDNF) filled a deep void for patients living with one of the most misunderstood and underdiagnosed syndromes in history. EDNF grew from one woman’s tireless efforts to find others with whom to share emotional support, into a vital information link to and from the medical community. Often existing on a shoestring, the impacts of EDNF’s contributions to the advancement of Ehlers-Danlos research, patient support, and public advocacy, have been felt around the world.
From the industriousness of Nancy Rogowski’s quest to learn more and to spark hope in others—to the volunteer efforts, initiative, and support of thousands to transform our understanding of Ehlers-Danlos in its many, often dangerous forms—The Ehlers-Danlos Society emerged in May 2016 as the very first truly international organization devoted entirely to global research and the support, advocacy, and advancement of Ehlers-Danlos patients, caregivers, and medical professionals.
