Today is World Scleroderma Day in his honor and to create awareness of this rare disease. Paul Klee was an abstract artist, one of the great artists of this movement. His GI system was affected severely by the disease and he ended his life incontinent before his death.
As we know, scleroderma is a rare disease that has been given very little attention or research until the past few years. Just reading this forum will tell you how damaging this disease is but will also give you strength and hope as you view the way others face it bravely.
Thank you to the ISN for everything you do to increase awareness, create a forum, and fund research.
