Thank you for visiting my page!!
I support The Mo'Joes in the fight to win against Sarcoidosis and stand behind my dad, Joe Pollard, someone who fights this everyday. His battle started long ago, but in 2011 he had the fight of his life. He managed to overcome everything thrown at him designed to bring him down and is still ready to fight every day. He has never let his fight define who he is, and has always stood strong. Even on his bad days he the type of person to worry about everyone else first.
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 us reach our goal. Together, we can Stop Sarcoidosis!
