Fighting sarcoidosis as well as other rare diseases.

Episode 24 Sarc Fighter Frank Rivera fights long Covid-19

December 28, 2020

Frank Rivera is one of the loudest voices in the Sarcoidosis community.  But COVID-19 didn't care.  It hit him with a vengeance, then it came back.

In Episode 24 of the Sarc Fighter Podcast, Frank talks about what doctors are calling "Long COVID"  because it just doesn't go away.

Despite his condition, Frank continues to work as a volunteer, helping other sarc patients.  In fact, he recently formed a new outreach group called strongerthansarcoidosis.org  to help make it easier for people to get answers about doctors, medications and navigating the tangles mess that is too often between sarc patients and the care they need and deserve.
