The Bernie Mac Foundation is dedicated to building a worldwide community of healthcare professionals, patients and concerned care givers working together to promote scientific research and education for our future.

The Bernie Mac Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving care for sarcoidosis patients and to finding a cure for this disease.

We are dedicated to a more thorough understanding of Sarcoidosis the disease, its impact on patients' lives and current opinion regarding treatment. This international community of thought leaders, healthcare providers (researchers and clinicians) and patients will raise funds to support research and create education-based opportunities for patients and their families.

All donated monies will go to research for a cure through the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research, the Respiratory Health Association and the American Lung Association. We also will raise awareness of this debilitating disease through worldwide networking and posting of new findings. Finally, we will help support individuals and their families where Sarcoidosis has created financial hardship.

Started in 2007 and headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the Foundation is chaired by Rhonda R. McCullough with Je'Niece N. Childress.
