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.

Why am I raising money for the SRF?
My mother fought a long and difficult battle against scleroderma, which she ultimately lost in April 2012. I'm raising money as a tribute to her strength and her will to stay alive.

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

    Dear Family, Friends, and Strangers,

    My family and I have experienced one of the worst tragedies you could imagine...losing our matriarch at 54, on April 10, 2012. She was smart, beautiful, tremendous, inspiring, caring, loving, and beautiful inside and out, and she fought Scleroderma with every living breath of her body. My mission is to continue her perseverance against this disease.

    As someone who is affected by Reynaud's Phenomena (a different, but closely related disease), this foundation is near and dear to me - not for my battle with Reynaud's, but for what Scleroderma does to a person. Make it clear - this is a disease that has no boundaries - any one of us could be affected by it. It is not something that is 'caught' and can be prevented - this just happens, like a major 5 car accident, when you're at the prime of your life

    This disease MUST GO AWAY. There are a lot of initiatives that the SRF are leading in research and care....and my goal is to further those. I hope - in my lifetime - that Scleroderma is eradicated, and no one ever will have to worry. With your help, WE WILL FIND A CURE.

    So, with that being said - please, Please, PLEASE help me raise $5,000 by the end of the year. You help me raise $5,000? Great. I will match you dollar for dollar - to a total of $10,000. This is a FULLY TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION (as allowed by law).

    Please...donate in memory and in honor of your loved ones, and in partnership with my late mother, Rori Wilensky Eisenberg - her dying wish (other than to pass on her Kugel recipe) - was to eradicate Scleroderma.

    Thank you for your time.

    All my best,
    Trent

    I will be running the Course de l'Escalade Marathon this December in Geneva to raise money for the Scleroderma Research Foundation.

    I will be running it in memory of my mother, Rori Eisenberg, who lost her battle with scleroderma in April 2012.

    My mother, though she was never able to attend the Fete De l'Escalade, loved the holiday dearly, and always got a kick out of the Marmite Chocolate pots. They aren't as good as her cheesecake...but really, what is?

    Escalade is a famed local holiday in Geneva, Switzerland, commemorating the successful Genevois defense against the invading Savoyards in 1602. It is a weekend-long celebration with lots of historical reenactments, mulled wine, and of course, being Switzerland, chocolate!

    I will be running the Course de l'Escalade Marathon this December in Geneva to raise money for the Scleroderma Research Foundation.

    In years past, my sister, Jaci, has run this race; due to a nasty heel injury, she can't run - but I will substitute! I will be running it in memory of my mother, Rori Eisenberg, who lost her battle with scleroderma in April 2012.

    My mother, though she was never able to attend the Fete De l'Escalade, loved the holiday dearly, and always got a kick out of the Marmite Chocolate pots.

    I will match the first $1000 of donations dollar for dollar - so donate today!
