My name is Rosie Bartel. In 2009 I had a routine knee replacement surgery that resulted in a MRSA infection. That started me on a journey of five years, twenty-seven surgeries, and the loss of my right leg.
Needless to say, my life has changed dramatically. I can no longer continue my life as an educator the way I used to love to do, but I can educate in new ways. My goal is to create a world where no one has to go through what I’ve gone through. I want to create a world free of MRSA.
I want this to be a place where people can learn about MRSA and ways to prevent other people from being infected with it. I also want people to ask questions and share stories on my blog.
