Hello all,

Australia has for the past two years joined with many countries around the world to raise awareness of scleroderma through this special day. June 29 was chosen in recognition of Paul Klee, a gifted Swiss artist, who passed away on this day in 1948.

His painting titled "Kettledrummer" was chosen for brochures to use for this day. His art work was strongly influenced by his illness, systemic scleroderma.

Around Australia many events have been prepared to highlight this special day.

We hope our efforts go some way to helping to raise awareness :emoticons-group-hug:
