Scleroderma is a chronic, often progressive autoimmune disease, without any cure. It means “hard skin”, and can cause a thickening and tightening of the skin. If it gets internal, it can cause severe damage to internal organs, and death. Michele Fuchs and a group of her friends wanted to find a way to support their friend, Stacie, who has the disease. Michele is here to discuss the 10th Annual Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Walk; she is joined by Kelly Kohls, a former committee member who has Scleroderma.
Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma is happening Sunday, August 19 at Kinderberg Park in Germantown. Registration starts at 7:30am, and the 1 or 3 mile walk starts at 9am. For more information and to register, visit Scleroderma.org/SteppingOutGermantown .
