June is Scleroderma Awareness Month

Scleroderma Aware - Facebook - Cover Photo.jpg

The Scleroderma Foundation is honored to partner with the Scleroderma Society of Canada and the Scleroderma Research Foundation on an awareness campaign during Scleroderma Awareness Month in June. The organizations have come together for a second year as a strong voice with a unified message to advance awareness about scleroderma throughout North America and globally.

Throughout the month of June, you will see blog posts, Twitter messaging and Facebook posts on the three organization’s sites. We hope you will spread these stories on your own networks to advance our cause and outreach. We also ask that you take the pledge at to tell at least one other person about scleroderma this month, either through conversation or social media.

Join our fight to spread scleroderma awareness. Learn more about the “Hard Word. Harder Disease” campaign at today.
