Welcome to SarcoidosisUK!
I am the Chairperson of SarcoidosisUK and was diagnosed with sarcoidosis in 2004. I know first hand how challenging it can be to have sarcoidosis. That challenge is the reason why we all work so hard at SarcoidosisUK.
SarcoidosisUK have four main goals – to provide quality information, to provide meaningful support, to increase awareness, and to fund research towards a cure. We work with top sarcoidosis specialists to write detailed information pages and leaflets. We have different support options so you can choose what works best for you; you can speak to a specialist nurse, you can meet others affected by sarcoidosis at one of our support groups or chat virtually in our online forums. We know it can be hard to find a doctor who understands sarcoidosis so we’ve created a recommended consultant list.
However SarcoidosisUK’s main goal is find a cure. We have funded a significant piece of research into understanding more about sarcoidosis each year for the past 3 years. We are going to fund more research this year, next year, and every year until we have found a cure for sarcoidosis.
None of our work is possible without donations. We receive no government money and are 100% reliant on your generosity. Any donation, big or small, makes a huge difference to our ability to help others and fund a cure. Please consider donating today!
Wishing you the very best,
