Episode 3 Patient Frank Rivera bares his soul.
Sarcoidosis patient Frank Rivera has one of the most severe cases of Sarc you can imagine. "It's easier to tell you where I don't have it, than where I do," Frank told me during our talk on the podcast. Frank was one a runner. A good one, turning a marathon time of 2:30 and running under a 4-minute mile. Now, he walks with a cane. Despite the setbacks, Frank Rivera is one of the loudest voices in the fight against Sarcoidosis. He organizes a walk on Long Island. He's just published a book. He even worked to get a billboard in New York's Times Square to fight Sarcoidosis. I hope you enjoy our talk recorded in February of 2020 at Chevy Chase, Maryland during a meeting of advocates for the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research.
