Welcome to Theresa's Page

Theresa Melendez

Thank you for visiting my page!

As you might know, the fight against sarcoidosis is a cause that is important to me.

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.. I myself am a sarcoidosis warrior. I have stage 2 pulmonary and cardiac sarcoid. My skin and spleen also being effected . Out of everything going thru my battle i would love to see a cure found and more info and support put out there on this disease .

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