While great strides are being made in managing scleroderma and its complications, there is no cure. To combat this disease, the Michigan Medicine Scleroderma Program has developed a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team of clinical and research specialists from many disciplines, including rheumatology, pulmonology, cardiology, gastroenterology, infectious diseases, dermatology, physical medicine & rehabilitation, and plastic surgery - all dedicated to delivering world-class patient care and support while pioneering cutting-edge research aimed at reducing suffering, preventing death, and ultimately finding a cure for scleroderma.
These efforts would not be possible without the generous support of outstanding individuals who share our vision and are committed to helping make that vision a reality.
In the below articles, you will find profiles of several of our most distinguished benefactors, each of whom has agreed to share their stories related to dealing with scleroderma. While each of their stories is unique, all of the people featured share two very important things in common: Their lives, or the life of someone they love, have been negatively affected by scleroderma and they have decided to turn their personal experience into an opportunity to help others by supporting our critical research efforts. We encourage you to read their stories, and hope you will find them enlightening and inspiring.
