Thank you for visiting our page!

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

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. There is currently no known cure for this disease and treatment options are limited and often ineffective.

We have chosen to support the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) by fundraising for Team KISS and to raise general awareness of this disease!

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.

In April of 2018, we will be raising awareness and funds through two big events: 'Paint the Town Purple' and 'Akron Rubber Ducks' baseball game.

Please join us in wearing purple,make a donation and going to the game on the following dates- Paint the Town Purple- April 13 and Akron Rubber Ducks- April 27.

Please consider helping us reach our goal of raising awareness and funds. Together, we can Stop Sarcoidosis!
