Estella Perryman; the mother of New Orleans Saints #34 Justin Hardee; battled Sarcoidosis for 15 years! On December 12, 2013 Justin’s life turned upside down when his biggest motivation, supporter, and best friend passed away from this debilitating disease. Justin was only 19 years old, his mother was 55 at the time of her passing. Resources and education for Sarcoidosis is scarce. They like other families could have benefited from education and resources for this disease during his mothers’ suffering if it were available.
Justin partnering with Adams Sarcoidosis Awareness gives him the opportunity to help assure those and their loved ones suffering from Sarcoidosis will get the education and resources they need during such a traumatic time in their life. While there are organizations focusing on research finding a cure, we offer assistance with immediate financial relief. Immediate relief consist of temporary financial support such as medical office and prescription copayment, gas vouchers to get to and from doctors’ appointments, monthly support group for sarcoidosis snowflakes and their caretakers. During the holidays we offer extra assistance to make sure everyone can enjoy no matter their situations.
Justin Hardee is not just a CB for the New Orleans Saints. He obtained a degree in communication just after two years of college. Justin is a philanthropist and loves his community. Justin participated in the “NFL’s My Cause My Cleats Campaign; wearing custom made cleats with a photo of his mother and purple and white (Sarcoidosis Color).
