Stepping Out To Cure Scleroderma Walk
Scleroderma is a chronic, often progressive, autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own body. Scleroderma actually means “hard skin.” It can cause a thickening and tightening of the skin. In some cases, it causes serious damage to internal organs including the lungs, heart, kidneys, esophagus and gastrointestinal tract. As scarring (sclerosis) of these organs it can lead to organ failure and death.
There is no cure for Scleroderma.
One of my best friends, Farah, her mother passed away from Scleroderma so this disease really hits home for me. This Sunday is the Stepping Out To Cure Scleroderma Walk. Hope you all can make it out to support the cause!
