Sarcoidosis is a disease that can affect several organs throughout our body, including lungs, skin, and lymph nodes. The cause of this disease is unknown and few know little about it. Men and woman with this disease can experience shortness of breath and fatigue, which can often make daily activities difficult. In 2015, Amanda was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis. It affects her lungs and lymph nodes. Amanda now is on multiple medicines at high doses to get trough the day. Some days she relies on inhalers to control her shortness of breath with daily activities. Amanda has also been experiencing discomfort in her muscles, which likely is from Sarcoidosis as well. Amanda with her friends and family are looking to raise money to stop Sarcoidosis! Help us spread the word and raise money for awareness of this disease!
