June 29th is World Scleroderma Day
Those affected by Scleroderma often suffer in relative silence. Let’s lift them up on World Scleroderma Day.
Like many other auto-immune diseases, you can’t always see the pain and damage being caused by scleroderma.
In fact, people in the early years of their condition, often aren’t sure yet what the cause of their pains symptoms are. Once diagnosed, you turn the corner to being able to understand your own body and what you have been dealing with for years.
