Thank you for visiting my Cure Crew page!

I've worked in the medical manufacturing world all of my career, and never thought I'd be the one who might need our products. I've just recently been diagnosed with diffuse scleroderma, and am at the start of this journey. I've read everything I can put my hands on, but would love to learn more and find support from other members in similar situations. My plan is to learn and then to give back - if I've got to have this disease, some good has to come out of it.

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 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. 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.
