Thank you for visiting my Cure Crew page! In 2001, I was diagnosed with Systemic Scleroderma. With the tremondous support of family, friends and a fantastic team of doctors, I am coping with the challenges of this chronic illness better than expected.

Please join me in the fight against Scleroderma. 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 auto-immune 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.

Your support is vital and, together, we will find a cure.
Thank you so much!
