BENEFITING: FOUNDATION FOR SARCOIDOSIS RESEARCH
Kim Piccini Shaw wrote -Hello,
My name is Kim. My children and I are walking in honor of my husband who is in desperate need of a double lung transplant. This disease has effected our family in such a dramatic way. Are pray to raise awareness about this rare disease that has no cure. Doctors don't know much about this disease, or why some don't have any symptoms, and why few like my husband fight for their lives due to the destruction of many organs caused by Sarcoidosis.
My husband Bryant is currently on 10 liters of oxygen, with very little lung capacity left. His lungs, liver, heart, stomach, eyes, joints, splean, and muscles have all been effected by this monstrous disease we call Sarc.
Our faith is in Jesus as our healer, but desire for Sarcoidosis to get some recognition for funding. Many deadly diseases get millions of funding like cancer, and they understand how to fight cancer. Sarcoidosis is a mystery...no cure, Doctors don't even know how a person gets it! We need answers which means awareness and funding.
So we're asking as a family deeply effected by this disease please help us, as we walk towards stopping Sarc.
