Armsted Christian, a native of Poughkeepsie, New York, and and a 22 year resident of New Bedford, Massachusetts was born in 1951 and diagnosed with sarcoidosis in 1976, while a resident of Boston, Massachusetts. He was hospitalized with double pneumonia and as a result of x-rays and other pulmonary testing, his condition was discovered. Armsted wanted to help others with his condition, achieve a better quality of life, while being challenged with the varied characteristics of sarcoidosis. He understands the value of sharing information, which helps to educate those who suffer from this disease, as well as family members, and other interested persons. Armsted also believes that in order to raise awareness, one must be able to gather accurate information from a number of reliable sources, offering medical alternatives to those living with sarcoidosis that include traditional medical practices and treatment as well as homeopathic considerations.

He has been fortunate to have no side effects from pharmaceutical prescription medications, as a part of his treatment plan for over 25 years, and attributes this success to the incorporation of homeopathic medicines, under careful watch on the part of his physicians, with that of his prescription medications. As a result of his own personal research and professional guidance and consultations with doctors of both communities, he has found a balance, which has allowed him to have a relatively normal quality of life.

Armsted has pulmonary sarcoidosis, which affect his lungs, and has caused severe scaring of lung tissue, restricting his breathing. He is currently a bilateral lung transplant candidate, and is awaiting his opportunity to receive this much-needed surgery. He has received treatment from The Deaconess Hospital, Beth Israel Hospital, Lahey Clinic, New England Baptist Hospital, and is presently being treated at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he is on the official recipient list and is awaiting his transplant.

Armsted, along with the concern, participation and generosity of individuals, civic groups, community organizations, corporate sponsorship and philanthropists, is on a quest to raise financial resources to help in the research and ultimate cure of this very silent disease. Through the development of his non-profit organization, the Armsted R. Christian Foundation for Sarcoidosis, (Education, Research, and Treatment), is committed to this initiative to make a difference, and to be a multi-dimensional resource organization for those who are living with the daily challenges of sarcoidosis.

Closer to Thee
By Armsted Christian


Oh my beloved Lord,
As I walk through these days that you have granted me
I am in a state of prayer and thanksgiving
Your grace in my life is sufficient and has altered my
Creating something healthy and new within me.


Even though I am tested sometimes, and challenges
are in my path
Your encouragement is all around me and your power
covers me
I see the blessings of your sunshine and your rain
For both are necessary to maintain a balance in your


I know that the breath I consciously take each moment
Is a direct reflection of your omnipresent and never
changing love, for me
My desire is to be pleasing in your sight
And to learn all that I can about you


For I can clearly see the benefit of my personal
relationship with you Lord
And as I learn to follow your ways for my life
I begin to decrease in self and feel your increase within
Giving me your peace, which passes all understanding


As I continue to move
Closer to thee

May God surround you with His comfort and protective care. I want to thank you for your support and kindness, and most of all your sensitivity to my condition. I am grateful for each day of life granted me, and people like you add to the significance of my days, during these challenging times. I remain encouraged and confident that God will have His way ultimately. I am in good spirits and have no fear within me concerning the options and outcomes which are present. I know that the Lord is with me. Please know that I value you as my friends, some known to me, yet others of you, beginning this ongoing journey with me. It has been and continues to be a very amazing multi-level experience. Thank you for helping to periodically lighten the load.

God Bless you and your lovely families...
Yours in the Light
