Help us to keep smiling
We invite you from all over the world to post a picture/video with smiles on social medias like twitter, facebook, instagram etc with the hashtag #ScleroSmile
Scleroderma is a rare, chronic, autoimmune rheumatic disease that affects the body by hardening connective tissue. Skin and internal organs can be damaged by this illness. It is life threatening and currently there is no cure. However, successful treatments are available for individual organs.
If you have been diagnosed with Scleroderma, we want to let you know that you are not alone.
25 associations in 19 European Countries united in the FESCA network are ready to support you and to stand together in this battle.
Join our community and let’s face it together.
Help us to keep smiling by donating to research!
The Federation of European Scleroderma Associations (FESCA aisbl.) is an umbrella support and advocacy organisation composed of the national scleroderma associations of 19 EU countries.
