Karen's Hope for a Cure

It's our 9th Walk (virtual this time) and still no real medicine or cure for Scleroderma.  Please help by Joining our virtual walk and by donating to our local chapter.  We utilize this money to raise awareness and education by having tables at health fairs, having education days and putting money directly into the hands of the researchers.

On Saturday, June 12th, 2021 I will again join other patients and families to help end the devastating effects of the autoimmune disease, Scleroderma.  

Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic connective tissue disease (autoimmune).  There is no cure.  Hardening of the skin is one of the most visible manifestations of the disease.

I have a personal stake in this particular event. As most of you know that I have this disease and it's caused my family to go through a lot these last eleven years. It's attacked my skin, lungs and GI tract.   We have lost people this last year to this disease.   I don’t want to lose any more. I want to help FIND A CURE.    Thanks    Hugs!    Karen

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

All contributions are for the Scleroderma Foundation to use to help find a cure for those whose lives have been affected by scleroderma.  If you would like to find out more about scleroderma and the Foundation, please visit national.scleroderma.org.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
