BENEFITING: SCLERODERMA FOUNDATION TRI-STATE INC CHAPTER
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2013
On March 9, 1992 I lost my Grandma, Anna Bordonaro to a very little talked about disease called Scleroderma. It's a disease that hardens your skin, making it very difficult to function. Scleroderma is said to be an autoimmune disease in which an individual's immune system goes berserk and responds dramatically against its own cells or tissues. In other words, the body's own cells are attacked, with the immune system thinking there is an intruder present. Scleroderma is more common in women, but the condition can occur also in men and children. In tribute to my Grandma, I would like to raise 93.00 (that's how old she would have been) by her birthday,May 1st. All money goes directly to the Scleroderma Foundation.
