Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. The word “scleroderma” comes from two Greek words: “sclero” meaning hard, and “derma” meaning skin. Hardening of the skin is one of the most visible manifestations of the disease.

The mission of the Scleroderma Foundation New England is to help constituents make contact with each other through support groups, newsletters, and meetings; to provide education about scleroderma; and to promote and raise funds for medical research seeking the cause of and cure for scleroderma.

We meet our mission through the support of volunteers, creating opportunities to connect our community, and the support of our constituents throughout New England. It is only through your support that we will reach our ultimate goal - to find the cure for this disease and relieve the suffering it causes to patients and their loved ones.
