About:

Scleroderma or systemic sclerosis is a chronic, progressive connective tissue disease characterized by fibrosis (thickening and hardening) of the skin and internal organs. Derived from the Greek words “sclerosis” meaning hardness and “derma” meaning skin, scleroderma literally means hard skin. The Scleroderma Society of Canada serves as an advocate nationally for those affected by the disease and works collaboratively with regional scleroderma organizations and the international scleroderma community to achieve common objectives. Scleroderma Canada is committed to promoting public awareness, supporting those affected by Scleroderma and funding research to find a cure.
