Thank you for visiting my Cure Crew page! Please join me in the fight against scleroderma. Every contribution we make together is an investment toward a cure. Supporting my Cure Crew efforts will enable the Scleroderma Research Foundation to fund research that will find improved therapies and, ultimately, a cure for people living with scleroderma.

WHAT IS SCLERODERMA?
Scleroderma is much more than ‘hard skin,’ as its name implies. Chronic, complex and debilitating, it can affect the internal organs with life-threatening consequences. Depending on the subtype of illness, scleroderma can damage the joints, muscles, lungs, kidneys, vasculature and gastrointestinal tract with grave results. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease. It is not contagious and not directly hereditary. Scientists don’t yet know what causes it and until a cure is found, medical research is the key to developing improved treatments that will help patients live longer, fuller lives.

WHAT IS THE SRF?
The Scleroderma Research Foundation is the nation’s leading nonprofit investor in medical research aimed at finding improved therapies and a cure for people living with scleroderma. A growing number of supporters have allowed the Foundation to invest millions of dollars in the most promising medical research. One hundred percent of the Foundation’s revenue comes from generous individuals who recognize that they can make a difference.

Your support is vital and, together, we will find a cure.

    Street Address:   900 High School Avenue
    City/State:   Columbia, MS
    The goal of the Hands of Hope Concert is to raise awareness and funds for the Scleroderma Research Foundation while bringing people together through music.

    The concert will take place at First Baptist Church in Columbia, Mississippi. Chef Fran Ginn will host a reception following the concert.

    The pianist, Bradley Broughton, lost his grandmother Lynda Williams on Mother's Day, May 10, 2015, after an 18-year-battle with scleroderma. Almost no one had a bigger impact on Bradley's life than his grandmother, and one of her favorite pastimes was listening to Bradley play the piano for her. And from the first time he played the piano for her until the very last, she was one of his biggest supporters. That's why he organized the Hands of Hope Concert -- to honor her life while bringing hope to others who are living with scleroderma.

    Bradley was classically trained on the piano for 13 years and has performed for three United States Supreme Court Justices, Attorney General Eric Holder, and author Harper Lee.
