A campaign launched for Scleroderma Awareness Month,
June 2021

Why #SayScleroderma?

Because not enough people know what scleroderma is or does.
Because lack of awareness causes delays in treatments and diagnoses.

This is why we launched #SayScleroderma for Scleroderma Awareness Month in June of 2021. Throughout June, we shared from community members on our social media, along with various ways you can make a difference by using your voice and influence. Though Scleroderma Awareness Month has ended, spreading awareness doesn’t need to stop. Let’s continue to #SayScleroderma, until we one day find a cure.
