Scleroderma will not take my smile
World Scleroderma Day 2017
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 autoimmune disease that turns simple daily activities into real challenges. It is life-threatening and currently has no cure. But patient organisations are fighting back. Join us as we spread awareness and support research. We refuse to lose our smiles!
Also known as Systemic Sclerosis, scleroderma is a chronic disease of the connective tissue, immune and vascular systems, and presents a major diagnostic and management problem for patients and their physicians. Despite this, the past two years have witnessed important improvements in therapies and care. Early diagnosis is essential, and the first symptom is nearly always Raynaud’s.
Help us to keep smiling by donating to research!
