Snowflakes of SarcoidosisCreator/Founder Minister Reginald Buie - Chair Person Sherri S. Buie
No two snowflakes are the sameHello saints of God, my name is Sherri Buie and I have Sarcoidosis. I have had Sarcoidosis for a number of years and it has been difficult at times to deal with but, I know that God will not put more on me than I can bear. Sarcoidosis is a disease which can affect many areas of one's life.
(SAHR KOY DOSH SIHS) is a disease in which small tumor like lumps form in many parts of the body. The most common form of Sarcoidosis is found in the lungs, and may cause coughing, accompanied by fatigue or fever. A chest X-ray can indicate the possibility of Sarcoidosis. In this country it is more common in women than in men, and much more common in African Americans than in whites. Sarcoidosis continues to be a baffling disease for much of the medical community, most Americans have never heard of this disease. Because Sarcoidosis is not a reportable disease one that doctors must report automatically to public health authorities. Accurate figures on its prevalence are hard to come by. For every case of Sarcoidosis that reaches the hospital, doctor's estimate, there are 10 others undiscovered cases in the public at lire. "It's not transmissible or reportable. It just doesn't get into our public health mainstream." "But Sarcoidosis is out there. People are dying from Sarcoidosis." Yet it is far from a household word. That is what's so terrible for people who are diagnosed with Sarcoidosis. They get it, and nobody seems to have heard of it. The purpose of this personal page is to provide spiritual as well as mental support to help patients, family members, and the community copes with Sarcoidosis.
Thank you God, for allowing my husband for recognizing and starting this vision. To Cassandra Williams: For re-sparking the drive to go forward with my vision, and guiding me to walk in my own destiny! No more dreams! (Love you my sister in Christ). To Derrick Thompson for making my story and vision come true, we could not have done it without you! To my church families; Mt. Peace of Raleigh, NC for believing in the vision, and to Interstate Ministry of Clayton for their prayers of healing! To my Pastor, James Allen of Lee’s Crossroads, for encouraging me to reach for the stars that God has for me. I want to thank all those that inspired and prayed for me to reach my mark.
