National Scleroderma Awareness Month is observed in June and sponsored by the Scleroderma Foundation. “Sclero” means “hard” and “derma” means “skin”. But hardening skin is just one of many symptoms scleroderma sufferers experience. Stiff joints, digestive issues, lung scarring, and kidney failure can all be part of scleroderma.
National Scleroderma Awareness Month highlights that scleroderma is an autoimmune disease with no known cause or cure. Research is vital, but because so few people are aware of the disease, research is lacking. Learn more about scleroderma. Help raise awareness.
