Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma - Manhattan

In Memory of Eithne Hughes

Thank you for visiting my Team Fundraising page to support the "Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma" event!

My mother, Eithne Hughes, was diagnosed with Scleroderma in 1988, and fought a long hard battle with it until her passing on October 2nd, 2016. Through the years, she had many reasons to complain, but she never did. Her positivity was endless and unwavering, and she always had a kind word for all who were lucky enough to come know her. She had a way of making everyone feel like they were the most important person in the room, including her doctors and nurses. Always up for sharing a story and laugh with her companions over a cup of tea, Eithne's passing has left a tremendous hole in the hearts of those who loved her. Eithne was a wonderful light in this world, and will be greatly missed.

In her honor, we are raising funds in an effort to find a cure for this terrible disease. You can help out our team in a few different ways:

1. Please visit Ciara's Instagram account between now and midnight June 9th to bid on one of 9 incredible, completely unique, hand-knitted items made by Nimble Nubs AKA my extraordinary mother! Her self-chosen brand name was inspired by the simple fact that she was missing quite a few finger tips due to scleroderma complications, but despite that she could knit like a machine and had a great sense of humor! You can go to @ciaraville and view instructions for bidding in my stories. All funds will go to the Scleroderma Foundation.

2. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to support my team’s effort to raise funds for people living with scleroderma. To make a donation, click on one of the team members to make a gift towards their fundraising effort to help our team.

3. If you would like to join our team at the event, and walk and help raise funds, please click on “Join My Team” and follow the directions.

Please help today! Our team sincerely appreciates your support, and we ask you to please share this with anyone who you think might want to help.

Help our team bring more awareness to scleroderma so we can find a cure!
