Man walking across America for Hidradenitis Suppurativa makes stop in Headland

Officially diagnosed with Hidradenitis Suppurativa,also known as HS in 2010, Kenton bailey is walking across the country to raise awareness for this incurable disease.

HS is a skin disorder that causes painful bumps under the skin near sweat glands and worsens with age.

Bailey is keeping to a southern route and today he made a stop in Headland.

"I've walked over 400 miles now from right off the coast of Savannah and by and large people are the most surprising aspect of the walk. I've had people donate to me whether it be money, material goods a place to sleep," said Bailey.

Bailey began his walk on August 11 in Tybee Island, Georgia.

He said he doesn't know how long the walk will take but his mission is to do what it takes to raise awareness, reaching one person at a time on a personal level.
