We are committed to see that sarcoidosis receives the recognition it deserves by educating the public and providing information and support to those affected by this diseases, as well as their family members.
Sarcoidosis (pronounced SAR-COY-DOE-SIS) is a potentially fatal inflammatory disease that can appear in almost any organ in the body. Although the lungs are affected in more than 90% of patients, the disease often attacks the heart, eyes, central nervous system, liver and kidneys. Once thought rare, sarcoidosis is now known to be common and affects people worldwide. The cause remains unknown and THERE IS NO CURE.
The Sarcoidosis Foundation of Texas was founded in 2006 and is a 501 (c) non-profit organization. The Foundations serves all of North Texas as a support and educational organization for those affected by the disease. Our focus is to promote community awareness and research and to provide support for patients and their families. In addition we also provide counselors, literature, and support groups.
