Does anyone have a family member with scleroderma?

I had a brother die with it and would like to talk to anyone involved with this terrible disease.

  • My aunt has it and she is very sick from it. I never heard of it until she was diagnosed with it a few years ago. I know it causes thickening of the skin and you can also have problems swallowing or something like that. I also found out that more men die from it then women. I'm not sure why that is. She had to be rushed to hospital on several occasions because of this. I'm sorry to hear about your loved one.
