Though dependent on oxygen and feeding tubes, she was determined to live her life to the fullest and began sharing her story in a blog titled “The Tube-Fed Wife.” This inspiring video, Episode 3 of the Dear Scleroderma film project by Project Scleroderma, was shot on the eve of her stem cell transplant procedure.
