Fighting sarcoidosis as well as other rare diseases.

Episode 70 | Laura Ward thought she had cancer… but it was sarcoidosis.

September 12, 2022

Sarc Fighter Laura Ward has been fighting sarcoidosis for three years.  Her first inclination that something was wrong happened at Yankee stadium, when she had trouble walking up to her seat.  Initial tests showed she had lymphoma.  But upon further review, it was pulmonary sarcoidosis.  That led to issues with prednisone and other life challenges that she shares in Episode 70 of the FSR Sarc Fighter podcast.
