More Funds To Research a Cure for Scleroderma

Scleroderma causes tremendous physical suffering and emotional pain and there is no cure.

Congress, please support this Petition by directing the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases at the National Institutes of Health to expand research related to scleroderma, development and evaluation of new treatments, research on the relationship between scleroderma and secondary conditions including: pulmonary hypertension, gastroparesis, Raynaud?s phenomenon, and Sjögren?s syndrome. Establishment of family and ?childhood-onset? patient registries. Support for the training of new investigators. Direct the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to establish a scleroderma public awareness campaign highlighting disease symptoms, prevalence, related conditions, and the importance of early diagnosis.

 

This Petition is very important to patients and family members living with Scleroderma. Thank you in advance for your consideration of this Petition.

I’ve watched my father lose his livelihood, spirit, self, and life to this disease. The amount of suffering is unimaginable and heart wrenching. Please fund the research for a cure for this awful disease. We need your help. There are far too suffering. This disease destroys families.

Progress has been made but we need Congress to continue funding research for Scleroderma to find both the cause and the cure.
