Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases.
The word “scleroderma” comes from two Greek words: “sclero” meaning hard, and “derma” meaning skin. Hardening of the skin is one of the most visible manifestations of the disease. The disease has been called “progressive systemic sclerosis,” but the use of that term has been discouraged since it has been found that scleroderma is not necessarily progressive. The disease varies from patient-to-patient.
The Scleroderma Foundation Southern California was established in 1998. Serving thousands of patients, families and loved ones from the Central Coast to the Southern border.
Our Mission is to SAVE lives and CURE scleroderma through programs committed to SUPPORT, EDUCATION and RESEARCH.
