It’s a horrific disease, scleroderma, an autoimmune illness that causes a hardening of the skin and internal organs that can lead to an early death. So what can you do about it? Laugh and give, that’s what. That’s what Bob Saget has been doing ever since his sister Gay succumbed to the disease at 47, many years ago. He’s been a tireless advocate and fundraiser ever since, working with the nonprofit Scleroderma Research Foundation to fund the research trying to improve therapies for those afflicted and to eventully eradicate the disease.
