Stepping Out To Cure Scleroderma

2017 Fundraising Walk


Hundreds of people gathered, thousands were raised and it all starts with one. Me, You.....

 "I would like to emphasize the importance of supporting research, the lack of funding hinders research progress and delays the identification of the cause and cure for scleroderma. 
Thus, it is critical to support research via organizations that promote peer-reviewed research, such as the Scleroderma Foundation, to increase awareness about the importance of research and advocate for increased National Institutes of Health funding." Dr. Carol Feghali-Bostwick
