We are walking in honor of my dad, Joe Pollard. He is the strongest man I know and has been fighting Sarcoidosis since 2004. He spent 2011 in Christ Hospital just to come home in a hospital bed. It was there that he retaught himself to walk and do the daily tasks we all take for granted. When he was sent home my mom and I were told that all we could do was make him comfortable. Beyond all odds, he is still with us and not giving up without a fight. His battle has brought him through hell and back more than once. He will be fighting this disease for the rest of his life. There is not a lot known about Sarcoidosis currently but hopefully if we are able to spread awareness and raise funds they can find a cure!
We may not be fighting the same fight that he is, but we can still fight with all our might! Please spread awareness however you can. The loose coins in your pocket could make a huge difference in a lot of lives!
