Scleroderma Awareness Month

Date: Tue 18th April 2017

Scleroderma Awareness Month #SclerodermaAwarenessMonth is during June.

Scleroderma is a rare, chronic disease of the immune system, blood vessels and connective tissue. 2.5 million people worldwide have scleroderma, and in the UK there are 12,000 people diagnosed.

It is an autoimmune condition, meaning the immune system becomes overactive and attacks healthy tissue in the body. It is a severe condition and can be fatal.

Put June in your diary and get involved in Scleroderma Awareness Month.
