2018 Stepping Out - Coconut Creek (SEFL Chapter)

Carmen's Crew

Scleroderma is a group of rare, progressive diseases that involve the hardening and tightening of the skin and connective tissues. For unknown reasons, the immune system turns against the body, producing inflammation and the overproduction of collagen. Systemic scleroderma also harms internal organs, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys and digestive tract.

We lost Carmen to this cruel condition on October 30, 2007 and feel her loss every day. She was a beautiful child who grew to be a bright, wonderful, funny woman with a charming personality and insight into life that many "healthy" people lack. It's safe to say that she was as rare as the disease took her from us. Carmen was only 34 years old.

Ten years later we find courage in those who struggle still, as well as those fighting for a cure through research and education. And we think that Carmen would be proud.
