More than Systemic Sclerosis: The Inside Story’ is a collection of portraits showcasing the unique and inspiring stories of people living with systemic sclerosis, also known as scleroderma. Launched to coincide with World Scleroderma Day 2017 (29 June), this global initiative highlights the importance of understanding the ‘inside story’ of each individual living with systemic sclerosis. The initiative also aims to increase awareness of the potential serious consequences when fibrosis develops in vital organs such as the lungs. The new photography and film gallery features eight patients from seven countries, each telling their story about living with this rare condition.
