Living with Scleroderma

Why Cynthia Participates in CONQUER

“I lost a lot of me.” This is what Cynthia, dx 2021, shared about living with scleroderma. It’s just one of many reasons why she participates in research that accelerates progress towards a cure.

When Cynthia’s doctor asked her to enroll in CONQUER, the nation’s first longitudinal registry launched by the SRF to track scleroderma patient data over time, she said yes immediately. “I wanted to be involved in something to find out more about scleroderma,” she says.

Cynthia knows her participation in research is as critical as funding it. “All that we do in research takes money,” she says. “We all have to give something so we can get a cure for this disease.”

Will you join Cynthia and other’s like her by supporting innovative research like the CONQUER registry? You can make a difference by making a gift, which will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $50k, through July 31 thanks to a generous gift from SRF board members, Dr. Luke Evnin and Deann Wright. Or, share the challenge with your network and invite them to help us move research forward.

As Cynthia says, “It takes a whole village to help find a cure for scleroderma. It takes all of us.”
