Why Do You Walk bubbles.jpeg

We may not have been able to gather in person this year, but scleroderma patients need support now more than ever. If you haven't donated to a walk near you, there's still time! Together, we can provide support and education to scleroderma patients and their families while funding innovative research into scleroderma's cause and cure. Thank you for continuing to support this important work!
