About Us

The SFDF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness to help those affected by scleroderma and other fibrotic diseases. In addition to directly helping the scleroderma and fibrotic diseases community, The SFDF aims to educate others. We spread awareness with a goal of ensuring that more people can recognize the signs of scleroderma and realize the importance of research into scleroderma and other fibrotic diseases. 

Generally classified as an autoimmune rheumatic disease, scleroderma is a group of rare diseases that involve the tightening and hardening of the skin and connective tissues. In many patients, scleroderma harms structures beyond the skin, such as blood vessels, internal organs, and the digestive tract. Few effective treatments exist, and there is no cure.

We recently released the first issue of Scleroderma Stories, a publication featuring the journeys of 11 scleroderma warriors. Read here: issuu.com/thesfdf/docs/sclero_issue_1__pages_
