About the founder:
The founder Cynthia Sharp, like you, was born with Poland Syndrome.
She has had a challenging time finding others who had the birth defect and to find much information regarding how she got it or if there were other body/heath challenges. At one point she felt quite alone with her PS and had gone through many years of body shame and low self esteem. She woke up one day and said, let me see what I can do about this and the path to The Poland Syndrome Foundation was started.
It has taken time, but with passion and her desire to help others, she has not given up. The idea came to her in 2007 and in 2012, she is well on her way to making it happen. Since 2007 she started Body Bonding PS coaching, wrote a book called “P.S. You are Loved” and started a connection site for people with PS called Poland Syndrome Connection,all that effort lead to the foundation..
In 2011 Cynthia had a stroke, that put her back about a year from her goal of getting TPSF up and running. But if you know Cynthia you know that she just said this. “Yes a stroke was a definite challenge, but it gave me just one more reason to love my body, it’s still breathing.”
Cynthia, does most of the work on behalf of the Poland Sndrome Foundation herself and invites others to lead a hand in helping the foundation to be as supportive, educational and uplifting. If you would like to volunteer or have a suggestion that could help the foundation, please email Cynthia and share your idea or better yet reach her though the community.
What support the foundation needs at this time:
- • Active PS citizens willing to share their time here on the site, helping and inspiring.
- • People to have PS events in their area.
- • Doctors who have a background with PS, in these areas reconstruction, genetics or other; willing to donate time, service and talent.
- • Medical facilities to make a contribution their services.
- • A law office willing to contribute its time in helping, The Poland Syndrome Foundation, reach its US tax exempt status.
