LEARN MORE ABOUT SCLERODERMA
“Sclero” means “hard” and “derma” means “skin”. But hardening skin is just one of many symptoms scleroderma sufferers experience. Stiff joints, digestive issues, lung scarring, kidney failure—all can result. And sometimes be fatal. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease with no known cause and no cure. Research is vital, but because so few people are aware of the disease, our researchers don’t always get the resources they need. Learn more about scleroderma. Help us get the word out.
