Lack of awareness about scleroderma causes delays in treatment or misdiagnosis. This must end.
At the SRF, we are committed to shining a spotlight on this disease. Patients like David Knoller, an SRF Board Member, play a critical role by sharing their experiences and advocating for others.
“I was really lucky to have a doctor who could recognize scleroderma enough to diagnose it and send me to a specialist who could address it,” David says. “But I want the diagnosis of scleroderma to happen more quickly for other patients, so they don’t lose valuable time figuring out if they have it or not. So much damage can happen in the beginning.”
David’s advocacy is one of many ways to further the mission of the SRF to end scleroderma. However you choose to show support, you are making a difference in the lives of people living with scleroderma.
