Scleroderma Stories Issue 2
Please introduce yourself
I’m a middle child with an older sister and a younger brother. I live in upstate New York with my parents. My family is everything to me.
My hobbies are painting and quilting. Of course, my #1 passion is being an advocate and speaking out about scleroderma and raising awareness in any way possible.
I have a best friend that I have known since grade school who is an amazing person in my life. I babysit her beautiful kiddos twice a week, and I love those babies to bits!

Is there anything that has helped you overcome this effect on your confidence?
Do you have any advice for those living with scleroderma or other chronic illnesses?
