Mission

The Scleroderma Foundation has a three-fold mission of support, education, and research.

SUPPORT:  To help patients and their families cope with scleroderma through mutual support programs, peer counseling, physician referrals, and educational information.

EDUCATION:  To promote public awareness and education through patient and health professional seminars, literature, and publicity campaigns.

RESEARCH:  To stimulate and support research to improve treatments and, ultimately, find the cause and cure of scleroderma and related diseases.
