As you know, I joined The Foundation of Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) as the VP of Research and Strategic Partnerships back in December. I am in awe of this community everyday. Please help me during April - Sarcoidosis Awareness Month - to provide support, increase research funding opportunities, and move the needle towards better treatments and a possible cure for this rare and complex disease.

Sarcoidosis is a rare inflammatory disease that can impact any organ of the body. There are very few treatments and no cure for this condition. I need your help as I to work everyday with those living with sarcoidosis, their caregivers, researchers, and my fellow staff members to improve the lives of those living with sarcoidosis.

Because we still cannot come together physically, I will be participating in the virtual FSR step challenge to raise awareness and help support FSR’s mission – stop sarcoidosis. Steps for Sarc is a virtual step and fundraising challenge with the goal to amplify our message and connect with sarcoidosis warriors around the world.

During April’s Sarcoidosis Awareness Month, I am going to be completing my steps so that together we can reach 9 MILLION steps collectively or complete the equivalent of 4,500 miles. I need you to help me meet my fundraising goal of $475 to help fund FSR’s research programs and patient support initiatives this year. Additionally, throughout the campaign, I will be working toward completing a total of 126,720 steps for the month/60 miles (that is roughly 2 miles a day) I really need your help to stay motivated!!!. I promise will give you periodic updates on my progress.

By supporting me in Steps for Sarc, you will be contributing to the progress made towards FSR’s research agenda, groundbreaking sarcoidosis research projects, as well as FSR’s comprehensive Patient Education and Resource Programs. The sarcoidosis community and I greatly appreciate your generosity and support!

I hope you will join me this month and help me achieve my goals by:
1. Making a donation to my fundraising page
2. Joining the Steps for Sarc challenge and so together we can make strides towards a cure
3. Share this page link with your friends and family on social media to help raise awareness for sarcoidosis

Every step and dollar makes a huge difference in the lives of those living with sarcoidosis and our pursuit for a cure!

Thank you!
