Thank you for visiting my page!

As you might know, the fight against sarcoidosis is a cause that is important to me. I am a Mom of three beautiful girls. A daughter to my loving Mom and Dad. A baby sister to my two very protective older brothers. A granddaughter, a niece, a cousin, a friend to many. I am an artist, a Christian, a bartender, a writer, a listener, a lover of nature and outdoors...
I have struggled over the years with various ailments which doctors could never find a solution to. In December of 2016 I had had enough. I believed that the things that were wrong must be in my head and I refused to go to the doctor. I believed I must shut out the pain and push forward with a positive attitude and believe I am fine. On September 7, 2018 I was forced to the ER and then transferred by Ambualnce to another facility due to Kidney Failure. I awaited an emergency stint placement surgery and when it was done begged to be released so I could return to work. They allowed it and I found myself back in the ER a week later in kidney failure transferred by ambulance to the same facility. This time I spent a week and underwent several scans, test and lots of blood draws.
Sarcoidosis.... affecting my lymph nodes, spleen, kidneys, skin and suspicion of neurological involvement, possible muscle and joint involvement as well. Now to return to the top and reread... I am a Mom...Sarcoidosis is what I am fighting... not who I am.

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!
