Every once in a while, we'll highlight holidays and month-long celebrations in order for you to spend 5 minutes heightening your own awareness of certain issues. With that in mind, we call your attention today to Scleroderma. Defined as a "chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases", Scleroderma affects 300,000 people in the US, and is not presently curable. Today, learn more about the issue, become an advocate, or donate money to the cause. There are also support groups to help folks who have been diagnosed with Scleroderma.
We just made you smarter.
