What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Scleroderma is a chronic autoimmune rheumatic disease that can be disfiguring, debilitating and even deadly. The disease often causes the hardening and tightening of the skin and connective tissues, but can also severely damage the body’s digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems. Eighty percent of those afflicted with the disease are women, though scleroderma also strikes men and children across all ages and ethnic boundaries. Often, the disease strikes in the prime of patients’ lives, when they are 30-50 years old. The cause of scleroderma is unknown, and although significant progress has been made in managing some of the disease symptoms, no therapies yet exist to halt or reverse it’s process. Patients continue to experience pain, deterioration, and debilitation – and many patients die.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Scleroderma Research

The Scleroderma Research Foundation's Research Program is governed by the Board of Directors and facilitated by a volunteer Scientific Advisory Board comprised of highly regarded scientists who are leaders in their field of expertise. The Board of Directors and Scientific Advisors meet annually with researchers and clinicians from laboratories across the nation to select and fund the most promising scleroderma studies aimed at developing useful therapies to help patients live longer, fuller lives - and, ultimately, a cure for scleroderma.
