About Us

Welcome to the Scleroderma Foundation, South Carolina Chapter website, based in the Greenville area. We are here to serve you, so please feel free to contact us.

The South Carolina Chapter provides an answer to one of the problems of scleroderma—those with scleroderma need not feel alone any longer! Our mission is to provide a safe place for patients to share and also to increase public awareness. What most people don't know is that scleroderma is not really rare. In fact, it afflicts more people than Muscular Dystrophy, Cystic Fibrosis, or Multiple Sclerosis. Hundreds of thousands are afflicted in the United States alone. Yet, it still is a disease with no known cause or cure. We must, however, keep HOPE in our hearts...HOPE for a cure, HOPE for each other, and HOPE for the future. Together we can make a difference. Join us today!

Our Purpose

The PURPOSE of the Chapter is to help patients make contact with each other through Chapters, Newsletters, and Workshops;

To EDUCATE and INFORM the public about scleroderma, its meaning, and its consequences through a central base; to ENCOURAGE more awareness within the medical profession;

To PROMOTE medical research toward finding a cause and cure;

To ACCEPT donations, bequests, memorials, and grants from our generous supporters.
