Dear Fellow Sarcoidosis Patients:

Hello! We would like to introduce you to the NSRC Sarcoidosis Support Group. It's a great group made up of a wonderful and diverse mix of people from all over the country, and we have several members from Europe and Australia as well. Our membership is over 300 strong, and growing every week. We would be delighted to welcome you into our family! We have a great, good time together, and we learn a lot together too.

You can e-mail anyone in the group you wish, your mail will always be welcome. We will provide you with a membership list upon request. Also, you may write to any of us to request information, ask questions or just get acquainted; our names and e-mail addresses are listed below.

We offer special services for our members: from our "Good Docs List" we can provide you with the names of doctors who specialize in all of types of sarcoidosis, and, in most cases, practice within your local area or state; an extensive, up-to-date resource library; a country-wide person-to-person network; and a traditional support group list by city and state. ( We do ask that you reimburse the NSRC for postage for any resource material that must be sent snail-mail, with this small exception, all our services are free.)

In addition to making new friends via e-mail, there is plenty of opportunity to "talk" with each other at our lively and informative chats on AOL. Twice a week, you can find anywhere from 25 to 40 of us chatting away! Our AOL chat schedule is as follows: Thursdays at 10:00 P.M. EST in the Equal Access Cafe (Keyword - PEN); Sundays at 6:00 P.M. EST in the Helping Hand Cafe (Keyword - PEN). Each week, the Chat transcripts are e-mailed to all members.

Our group publishes a monthly e-mail newsletter, The Sarcoidosis Community News, which is filled with interesting and informative sarcoidosis related articles and information. All you have to do to be included on our mailing list is e-mail one of us and request it. You automatically also become an official member of the support group, if you wish.

All you AOL subscribers, please join us for the support and friendship offered at our chats. We look forward to "talking" with you the next time we meet! And again, if you have any questions, or would just like to correspond, please feel free to write to any of us at any time. Our mailboxes are always open. We hope to hear from you very soon.
