Website: Scleroderma Awareness Month
“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.
The Scleroderma Foundation has been fighting to spread awareness and help educate the public about this devastating disease for more than 15 years. Please join the fight and stand alongside us for June's Scleroderma Awareness Month. Help us put an end to "sclero-what?"
Scleroderma affects thousands of people, but there are billions who know nothing about it. Take our pledge to tell one person about this autoimmune disease that has no known cause or cure.
Visit HardWord.org to take the pledge today!
