I wanted to know more because my maternal grandmother had died from of it, age 46 - a year before I was born.
I had experienced worsening symptoms just a few months earlier with my skin swelling so tight and my elbows breaking open to the bones.
And, I have met several people here with Scleroderma... in Hollis and Nashua... that's within a 7 mile radius! Unbelievable considering the rarity.
I am sure that you will agree with me, Patti shows us all how to live with this diagnosis – 34 years! WOW…. Living the dream, indeed.

I am immensely grateful to James Carver MEP for organizing this event in memory of his late wife Carmen, who sadly passed from Scleroderma.
