We invite you from all over the world to post a picture/video with smiles on social medias like twitter, facebook, instagram etc with the hashtag #ScleroSmile
Also known as Systemic Sclerosis, scleroderma is a chronic disease of the connective tissue, immune and vascular systems, and presents a major management problem for patients and their doctors. Early diagnosis is essential.
New research has brought important improvements in therapies and care, so please join patient organisations and families as they spread awareness and support research.
Scleroderma is a rare autoimmune disease that stiffens the skin, turning simple daily activities into real challenges. It can affect all organs in addition to the skin, and while treatments exist, there is currently no cure. More research is urgently needed.
Help us to keep smiling by donating to research!
The Federation of European Scleroderma Associations (FESCA aisbl.) is an umbrella support and advocacy organisation composed of the national scleroderma associations of 19 EU countries.
