With no chapter in her area, she works tirelessly, mostly quietly, but very effectively to bring help and hope to the foundation family in her community.

Congratulations, Del Anselmo, our 2017 Support Group Leader of the Year.

Finding Purpose After Diagnosis

Dee BurlileEach person affected by scleroderma has their own unique story to tell. The Scleroderma Foundation understands just how important these collective stories are and creates a place for the patient’s voice to be heard. It is imperative that our legislators hear firsthand from those living with scleroderma. As a scleroderma patient, Dee Burlile joined the foundation at Capitol Hill Day to encourage legislators to address the needs of people with scleroderma.

"I understand that those of us with scleroderma need to speak with a unified voice. The Scleroderma Foundation is committed to improving the lives of people with scleroderma."

Please make a donation to the Scleroderma Foundation. Your gift ensures that we are able to strengthen advocacy on behalf of people affected by scleroderma.
