I have my sister 34 years old with Sclero; she was diagnosed  3 years ago. It is very frustrating to see how she gets worse every day; she goes to a lot of doctors but no one can raise her up, not even a little. Right now she is in the hospital in urgency room; I just want some one to help us! Please! We give our support to her as family and buy the medicines with a lot of suffering and we don´t see any positive results. Please be thinking of my sister and I hope you guys know about some one that can help us in Guadalajara Mexico.


Good thoughts to you.

Hi Santanamuff,


Welcome to these forums!


I'm sorry to hear that your sister has been diagnosed with Scleroderma and that she's suffering so badly from it.


I've included a link to our page on  Scleroderma specialists and also the Scleroderma Clinical Trials Consortium (SCTC) list which covers Mexico. We do advise our members to consult both lists.


I do hope that you will be able to get her the specialist help she needs.


Kind regards,

Hi Santana,


Welcome to Sclero Forums.  I hope you were able to find a scleroderma specialist from the links that Jo gave you. As it happens, scleroderma is a difficult illness to treat, in every country. An awful lot depends on what type of symptoms your sister is dealing with.  You can look up her symptoms on our main site, and see what the treatment options might be for them, too.


I am sending warm hugs for you and your family, in hopes that your sister feels a bit better, soon.



Warm Hugs,

Hello Santanamuff


Welcome to the forums, I am so sorry about your sister. Apart from wanting to say your sister is all the better for having you to support her I hope she turns a corner I can't add anymore to what has already been said.


Take care.
