Patient Profiles DAY 9
June Scleroderma Awareness Month 2017
|DEBBIE KING, CANADA|
What were your presenting symptoms?
What are your 3 biggest current challenges due to your diagnosis?
My biggest challenge by far is the digital ulcers - constantly getting infected, extremely painful, and flat out exhausting. I was doing ok until a nasty ulcer on my pinky finger showed up and I have a bone infection.
What are your 3 wishes for the future?
Big thanks go to Debbie for sharing her scleroderma experience for scleroderma awareness month. Please include her finger in your thoughts and prayers. Thank You.
