In honour of my dad
Help us fund the SarcoidosisUK Nurse Helpline!
In honour of International Nurse Day on 12th May 2021, we're asking for your help to raise funds for the SarcoidosisUK Nurse Helpline!
The SarcoidosisUK Nurse Helpline exists to provide anyone affected by sarcoidosis that much needed extra information and support - and in the past year, this has been more vital than ever. The Helpline has also recently hit an incredible milestone - our SarcoidosisUK nurses have now made over 2,000 scheduled calls since the service began! 🎉🎉🎉
Sarcoidosis patients and their families often find that they do not receive sufficient information and support from their GP, or even specialist. That's where SarcoidosisUK Nurse Helpline comes in.
The Helpline is run by two NHS nurses, Jo and Jenny, who have personal and professional experience of the condition. This means they have a superior knowledge and awareness of sarcoidosis and really do understand what sarcoidosis patients are going through.
The Nurses work tirelessly to provide support to so many people - here's just a few examples of the amazing feedback we get from patients about the service:
"Can’t thank you enough for the work you provide. Whilst this condition is incurable, it makes the world of difference to know we’re not alone, it makes the days pass more bearably. That’s invaluable."
"I had a great experience with the SarcoidosisUK helpline and spoke to the most lovely woman. I felt like I could talk freely and I felt for the first time in 2 years that someone was listening to me. So helpful and caring."
"I felt as though I had nowhere to turn because there is very little awareness and support for those suffering with sarcoidosis – it was very useful to speak with someone who understands life with the condition as well as having the professional expertise."
"I have only very recently been diagnosed and really appreciated being able to talk things through with the nurse. It has given me a better understanding of the condition, possible future treatment and some lifestyle measures which I can take."
Since we receive no government funding, we rely on your generosity to keep support options like the SarcoidosisUK Nurse Helpline going. If you can, please click on the donate button above and donate whatever you can to help us keep this vital service going for everyone affected by sarcoidosis.
We will continue to fight sarcoidosis together, so that no one is alone. Thank you for being a part of our journey, your donation is so important to us!
