Welcome to the Scleroderma Foundation of California
By Dr. Daniel Furst, MD.
(Internationally known for his expertise in the research and knowledge of scleroderma and one of our Foundation Board Members)
We are glad you found us and I hope we can help you understand your diagnosis and how to live your best life with scleroderma.
We want you to be educated and supported about this disease. If you’re educated, you can live successfully with scleroderma.
The amount of information may look overwhelming or even frightening, but it will help you explain the signs and symptoms so you can know and understand what you may be experiencing.
Most patients do not have all these involvements and your involvement may be very mild and may stay mild.
Remember that people with scleroderma are not alone. There are others in the same situation.
The Scleroderma Foundation of California has local support groups that can bring patients, family, friends, and caregivers together to help them or you, or both.
Our staff and volunteers are here to help you and your supporters. Remember, you are not alone and, importantly, remember that scleroderma is a treatable disease.
