EARL JACOBS, JR.

Founder


In an effort to help himself and others who had questions concerning sarcoidosis, Earl Jacobs, Jr. organized the Sarcoidosis Network (SN) in February 1992.


Earl definitely took initiative and confronted challenges. He didn’t complain about sarcoidosis; instead, he started the awareness network to help solve the mystery of this disease.


To quote the founder: “I decided to learn all that I could about sarcoidosis and share that information with those who have similar questions about this disease. I am particularly concerned about the lack of knowledge about sarcoidosis by many healthcare providers.”


Earl put his work ethics to the test as he researched sarcoidosis and shared what he learned with others affected by this disease. He also worked tirelessly to encourage and motivate patients battling this mysterious disease. The Sarcoidosis Network has grown tremendously since its inception and now has contact with people nationally and internationally.


In 1996, the organization became the Sarcoidosis Network Foundation, Inc. (SNF). Some of his contributions by his labor of love are monthly support meetings, literature on sarcoidosis, an Annual Awareness and Education Conference, and much more. Let us continue to keep Earl’s dream and hope alive by finding the cause and cure of Sarcoidosis.

By publicizing events connected with sarcoidosis, we seek to make all levels of our society more aware of the disease and that neither a cause nor a cure is known.
