Best Medicine: A 7-Year Tradition

By February 9, 2022February 28th, 2022No Comments

Long-time SRF Cure Crew members and scleroderma advocates, the Connors-McBride and Zini family, continued their seven-year tradition of producing a comedy show called “Best Medicine” to raise funds for a cure. The show was a hybrid experience, with a live show recorded in December and later shared virtually.

Maureen Connors-McBride lost her mother Patty (pictured here) seven years ago to scleroderma. Maureen says that Patty is “the reason we founded Best Medicine and what motivates us to spread awareness about this little-known disease. We’re hopeful that someday there will be a cure, but for now, we’ll keep using laughter to spread awareness since it is, of course, the best medicine.”

Over the years, the event has raised over $30,000 for scleroderma research. To the Connors-McBride and Zini family, thank you for your passion for finding a cure.
