2017 Stepping Out - Iowa (Heartland Chapter)

Gene's Team

Thank you for visiting my Team Fundraising page to support the "Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma" event! I was diagnosed with Scleroderma in 2013 and I face many of the same daily challenges of other patients with skin and joint issues, Raynauds, and GI complications. Scleroderma is an auto immune disease and can sometimes be associated with other diseases. In December 2015 I had an intestinal blockage that ended up being colon cancer. I went through 6 months of chemo treatment and soon had another blockage. This time it was large B cell diffuse lymphoma so another round of treatments which are finished now. I am so thankful to be able to participate in this year's walk. I know it is only possible because of the prayers and support that I have received from family, my church, and wonderful friends.
