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 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.

    Escalade 5K Edition 2012
    Date/Time:  Saturday, December 01, 2012 at 01:00PM
    City/State:   Plymouth, MN
    I will be running the Course de l'Escalade again this December to raise money for the Scleroderma Research Foundation. This year I will run it in memory of my mother, Rori Eisenberg, who lost her battle with scleroderma this past April.

    Escalade is a local holiday in Geneva, Switzerland, where I am currently residing to finish my PhD in International History. It commemorates the successful Geneva defense against the invading Savoyards in 1602. It is a weekend-long celebration with lots of historical reenactments, mulled wine, and of course, this being Switzerland, chocolate! The weekend before the holiday there are road races, and I am entered in one of them.

    My mother, though she was never able to attend the fete de l'Escalade, loved the holiday. I can't think of a better way to honor her memory AND support the search for a cure for this devastating disease.

    Thanks very much for any contribution you can make.

    Street Address:   (in Geneva, Switzerland)
    City/State:   Plymouth, MN
    I am going to run my first 5K in December - what better way to celebrate it than to run it in honor of my mom and raise money for Scleroderma research!

    I am in Switzerland for my graduate studies, so I will be running the Course de l'Escalade in the old town of Geneva on December 3rd at 1pm.

    I would greatly appreciate any contribution you could make.

    Thanks for visiting my page!
