, it really is wonderful when a family member comes in and helps out the way you are helping Greg. To be informed and learning about this disease (or any condition) is empowering to both you and to Greg.

We're here for both of you-- and don't hesitate to ask questions-- if we don't have the answers right away, we'll help research the issue and that way we all learn more-- inch by inch.

The other group I would love to have you check out is FSR--www.stopsarcoidosis.org. They have some wonderful brochures that you can order- and take in to Greg and his docs. They also have a couple of MD's that actually have sarc-- so you get both the "patient view" and the "doc's view". The other very very excellant site is www.sarcoidosissharma.com. Dr. Sharma has spent his entire career studying sarcoidosis-- and is considered one of the foremost experts on sarcoidosis. He may be able to have you send him Greg's medical records and be willing to consult with Greg's doctors to get this monster back in it's box--- It was his protocol that has me functioning as highly as I am--- which if you looked back in the ARCHIVES to early 2001, 2002-- you can really see how far I've come.

Give your son our best-- and we will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.
