Sarcoidosis:  A Quiet Epidemic


  There is a silent killer out there, plaguing the lives of so many, masquerading itself as other conditions (Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis & even Heart Attacks) but it cleverly manifests itself erratically within the cells and organs of innocent bystanders without “fair” warning!!

This “mystery” inhabitant is called Sarcoidosis (Sar-coy-doe-sis) & it seeks to destroy! 


Sarcoidosis has already "secretly" claimed the lives of so many people (those we know, some we don’t) & the list grows daily! It's up to us (survivors, family & friends who helplessly stand by us) to fight against this disease by speaking out loud about it.  It is our responsibility to shed light on the urgency of this quiet epidemic & find ways to hold it at bay! We must forge forward shoulder to shoulder with faith & unwavering strength because lives around the world depend on it!
