THE STORY:

Suzanne Bauerly wrote -

Sarcoidosis is a potentially fatal, inflammatory disease which effects the immune system causing damage to any organ in the body by attacking healthy tissue. I have Sarcoidosis. Living with this disease is a day to day, sometimes minute to minute struggle. Breathing, talking, walking and sometimes just opening my eyes can be a challenge. I am a single Mom raising two amazing daughters who are my inspiration. It was really hard to go from an active, healthy women and mother, holding a job, exercising every day, overseeing a MOMs group, teaching Sunday school, to barely being able to move or breathe. That is the sinister thing of Sarcoidosis, it can strike at anytime and anywhere in the body. The symptoms mock many other illnesses and it can be years before it is properly diagnosed. Mine has taken a toll on my body and 20 years of misdiagnosis. From lupus to lymphoma, loss of my right kidney, sarcoidosis puts me through the wringer. I am starting my group "Spark for Sarcoidosis-Bringing Light to Research and Results" to raise awareness and support for this disease. All donations raised will go to the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research. This organization is helping to fund the needed research for Sarcoidosis. They also provide seminars for researchers, Doctors and patients to promote, raise awareness and support for patients, caregivers and the medical community. Please visit their site at: www.stopsarcoidosis.org. Together we can start a Spark that will bring light to a cure
