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.

    After much prayer and consideration, we've chosen a select group of friends and family to receive a Gigi’s Jar. A Gigi's Jar is simply a mason jar for you fill with change, and of course dollars, too! If you agree to accept the challenge of filling your jar, we will get one to you by May 1st. And even if you don't accept we may give you one anyway:)! One of the things I learned from Gigi is not to ask IF someone will donate, just ask them HOW MUCH they will donate! We are asking the special people we know that will help us in honoring our friend, Gigi, who has Scleroderma, a chronic, complex and debilitating disease that often affects the internal organs with life-threatening consequences. Depending on the subtype of illness, scleroderma can damage the lungs, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract with grave results. Peripheral vasculature damage due to scleroderma can result in loss of digits or limbs. In some cases, the joints and muscles are affected, resulting in a loss of mobility. Please help us by donating the change in your pockets/purse at the end of the day. When your jar is filled, let us know, and we’ll make a donation to the Scleroderma Research Foundation. If you do not want a jar, but would rather donate online, please do so! Thank you, Niki and Ryan.
