Thank you for visiting my page!

As you might know, the fight against sarcoidosis is a cause that is important to me. On August 13, 2010 my Mom, Virginia "Vee Vee" Hazelwood, lost her battle with sarcoidosis. In an effort to raise awareness of this disease I've decided to run my first 5K in memory of my mom and am hoping to raise $100.

The Lynchburg Half Marathon & 5k is being held at the Blackwater Creek Trail in Lynchburg, VA on August 11th, just 2 days shy of the 8-year mark of my Mom passing. She was my motivator & encouraging and I'm sure to need both :)

Sarcoidosis is a rare, often chronic inflammatory disorder that causes the formation of granulomas, or clumps of inflammatory cells. This can occur in almost any organ in the body, most commonly affecting the lungs, lymph nodes, skin and eyes. While this disease affects as many as 200,000 Americans, there is currently no known cure and treatment options are limited and often ineffective.

I have chosen to support the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) by fundraising for Team KISS!

KISS stands for Kick In to Stop Sarcoidosis, and that’s what you'll be doing by supporting my page. FSR is the leading nonprofit dedicated to finding a cure for this disease and improving care and treatment options for sarcoidosis patients. The funds all go directly to FSR and their programs for improving patient education, supporting patients and their caretakers, and of course, funding research to find better treatment options and one day, a cure.

Please consider helping me reach my goal. Together, we can Stop Sarcoidosis!
