About Us – Life and Breath Foundation

About Us

Why We Exist

Sean Hull unexpectedly lost his mother in 1996. She had been struggling for more than 13 years with Sarcoidosis. She was a strong and courageous woman who never let the pain of Sarcoidosis affect her spirit or touch her soul. The way she lived her life helped create the building blocks for the Life and Breath Foundation.

Two years after his mother’s death, Sean officially founded the Life and Breath Foundation to help support, guide and inform the many individuals who suffer with the disease as well as financially support Sarcoidosis research. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $300,000 for Sarcoidosis research studies.

We know the support from generous contributors can help deliver hope, knowledge and some day even a cure.

Our primary goals are:

  • to offer the sarcoidosis community effective tools to track their journey, decipher medical issues and maximize their quality of life
  • to provide a nurturing environment for those affected by Sarcoidosis to share their experiences and
  • to build more awareness within the medical community to help combat this chronic disease.
