Founded in 2015 by Dr. Valentina Lyssova with the sole purpose of supplying the patients of scleroderma with a strong financial resource. The Lyssova Scleroderma Fund is dedicated to helping scleroderma patients have a better quality of life whilst coping with the debilitating disease. With immense commitment and conviction as well as an empathetic philanthropic heart, Dr. Lyssova aims to help patients in New York and beyond to cope with the myriad of medical and fiscal challenges that comes with living with scleroderma. Our inspiration to assist patients with scleroderma came from seeing the difficulties that her patients experienced both physically and financially. Our passion to support and enrich the lives of scleroderma patients, saw the ‘birth’ of the first fund for the disease, the Lyssova Scleroderma Fund. A New York State incorporated entity, the Lyssova Scleroderma Fund operates completely as a non-profit organization and for the benefit of scleroderma patients.
