Who we are
SarcoidosisUK was founded in 1997 and has been helping
people with sarcoidosis ever since. Sarcoidosis is a rare disease and suffers
from poor quality information, low levels of support and almost no research
into finding a cure. SarcoidosisUK works to change that.
Visit Sarcoidosisuk.org for more information.
?Sarcoidosis is a rare inflammatory disease which mostly affects the lungs and lymph nodes, but it can affect any organ including the heart, eyes, skin and nervous system. It is not properly understood and there is currently no known cure.
SarcoidosisUK is a small charity with big ambitions! We want to make a difference to the lives of those affected by sarcoidosis in the UK by providing information and support, raising awareness and undertaking research into treatments and a cure. We currently support over 7,000 people online and have strong relationships with both clinicians and patients.
