Scleroderma is a debilitating and too often fatal auto-immune disease that affects 300,000 people across our country. Scleroderma itself means "hard skin". The hardness is caused by increased production of collagen and other proteins that cause skin thickening and replaces normal skin structure with scar tissue. Scleroderma can be a devastating disease and the same thickening process may occur in the blood vessels, the lungs, the kidneys, the intestinal tract and other key organs.
Research over the last two decades has lead to improved treatment for scleroderma and has improved both survival and function for individuals with this disease. While this improvement is welcome, the fact is there is no cure and that individuals continue to be disabled and die from the disease.
