Scleroderma affects connective tissue and the vascular system, causing an overproduction of collagen in skin or internal organs and resulting in disfigurement and disability. For some people, the condition is life-threatening. The Scleroderma Foundation’s mission is to provide emotional support, disease education, and research funding. Since 1985, the Texas Bluebonnet Chapter has served scleroderma patients, their families, caregivers, and loved ones by advancing this three-fold mission:
- Support: Programs, peer counseling, physician referrals, and education to help patients and families cope with scleroderma
- Education: Seminars, literature, and publicity campaigns to promote public awareness and education
- Research: Research support to improve treatment and find the cause of and cure for scleroderma and related diseases
Nominated in honor of: Jovana Placido, a Texas Bluebonnet Chapter support group leader whom nominator Lia Young met at her first scleroderma conference. “Jovana is an active member, advocate for her fellow ‘sclero’ warriors, and a true champion who puts others’ needs before her own.”
