TeeGee has one of the most astute and warm sense of humor I have ever encountered and a hero in my book for doing so much to help spread awareness.

A little bit about the Gardener. (Copied and pasted from the shirt site)

theGardener is the founder of the grassroots Snarky Sarkie© Campaign to increase world wide awareness of Sarcoidosis. theGardener is the creator of the comic strip Rabid Barking Lymph Nodes© the world's first Sarcoidosis comic. He is also the author of My Pet Demon: A Sarcoidosis Journal© featured on the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research Stop Sarcoidosis Community web site. 

His journal, focusing on his own experiences with Sarcoidosis for over 20 years has a unique sarcastic twist and uplifting humorous tone. theGardener feels that humor is the best medicine and an effective way to convey a message and therein lies the core of the Snarky Sarkie© Sarcoidosis Awareness grassroots movement.

“ I am inspired by anyone who... in spite of tragedy or in the face of illness that is unfair and contrary, still throws a leg over the side of the bed and gets on with the business of living. That's guts and fortitude.” — theGardener

RIP Gene P. I. Duffy

It's so sad that he passed away. Sarc just kept eating away at him for so long. Gene was at the point he couldn't take prednisone because the damage from preds was feared to be worst from that of sarcoidosis itself. Although I only knew Gene through facebook and the Sila site and we didn't really communicate much. I did know that he comforted a lot of people through humor. I'm sad to see him go and will miss his facebook posts. Don't worry Gene, your daughter posted that she will take good care of Shackleton.
I know you suffered a lot Gene now it's time to rest in peace.

Prayers go out to the family...

Sarcoid free 2 years now

Haven't written much I have really been focusing on my goals and appreciating all the little things. Not sure if I'm out of the woods completely and don't really care. Not sure wether to call it remission or something else but I do know that it's important to take time to look around and smell the roses. As far as I'm concerned I fired my doctor (or so he said). I still think about it because I don't want to let myself forget.

Just thought I'd check in...
