THE STORY:

When I first joined Crowdrise, Mary's Scleroderma Project was the first I saw. I was shocked how I never heard of it and how she was so passionate about raising awareness. I am thankful that she did! Just a few months ago a friend's mother was diagnosed with scleroderma and through this page and through Mary, I was able to get alot of information and help to her and her family as they, too, did not know anything about this disease! I am lucky to take on this project and thankful it was there! Chance is just purpose waiting to happen and this project was meant for me to see!

Here's some info on the disease from the SCLERODERMA RESEARCH FOUNDATION website:

The word “scleroderma” is Greek for hard skin, the most visible characteristic of the disease. In fact, scleroderma is much more than this; chronic, complex and debilitating, it often affects the internal organs with life-threatening consequences. Depending on the subtype of illness, scleroderma can damage the lungs, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract with grave results. Peripheral vasculature damage due to scleroderma can result in loss of digits or limbs. In some cases, the joints and muscles are affected, resulting in a loss of mobility.

The symptoms and severity of scleroderma vary from one person to another and the course of the disease is often unpredictable. The number of women affected with scleroderma is disproportionately high with some estimates suggesting as many as four out of every five patients being female. The disease most often strikes between the ages of 20 and 50; however, children and those above age 50 across all ethnic groups are also affected.
