Stephanie Jordan Announces Sarcoidosis Campaign

IncurabIe Illness Warm Climate Move

Calumet City, IL – July 3, 2017 –  Stephanie Jordan was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis over 5 years ago. It initially started in her lungs, and has spread to her eyes, given her rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, diabetes, etc.

Basically her body is breaking down as the disease progresses. She lives in the Midwest, and can no longer tolerate fall and winters here. Stephanie needs assistance in accumulating funds to move west to a warmer climate. She no longer works (unable to and too young to get her pension) she receives ssdi which makes it virtually impossible for Stephanie to save the amount of money she would need to make a successful move.

About Sarcoidosis

Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that affects multiple organs in the body, but mostly the lungs and lymph glands. In people with sarcoidosis, abnormal masses or nodules (called granulomas) consisting of inflamed tissues form in certain organs of the body. These granulomas may alter the normal structure and possibly the function of the affected organ(s).

The symptoms of sarcoidosis can vary greatly, depending on which organs are involved. Most patients initially complain of a persistent dry cough, fatigue, and shortness of breath. Other symptoms may include:

•    Tender reddish bumps or patches on the skin.
•    Red and teary eyes or blurred vision.
•    Swollen and painful joints.
•    Enlarged and tender lymph glands in the neck, armpits, and groin.
•    Enlarged lymph glands in the chest and around the lungs.
•    Hoarse voice.
•    Pain in the hands, feet, or other bony areas due to the formation of cysts (an abnormal sac-like growth) in bones.
•    Kidney stone formation.
•    Enlarged liver.
•    Development of abnormal or missed heart beats (arrhythmias), inflammation of the covering of the heart (pericarditis), or heart failure.
•    Nervous system effects, including hearing loss, meningitis, seizures, or psychiatric disorders (for example, dementia, depression, psychosis).
