World Scleroderma Day 2015
This World Scleroderma Day 2015 we will be “unveiling Scleroderma”. Organisations across the globe are taking part in the campaign to raise awareness for 2.5 million individuals diagnosed with scleroderma worldwide.

What is Scleroderma?
Scleroderma is a chronic disease characterized by excessive deposits of collagen in the skin or other organs. The localized type of the disease, while disabling, tends not to be fatal.
Diffuse scleroderma or systemic sclerosis, the generalized type of the disease, can be fatal as a result of heart, kidney, lung or intestinal damage.
