Can't wait for a formal announcement from the news team, so I will share this latest item from the Newsroom myself:

Serena Justis: ISN Sclero Forums Support Specialist. As a Support Specialist I will steer members to reliable, up to date information, offer my ear to bend, my shoulder to cry on and my best advice based on my own education and experiences with life and scleroderma. Posted 03-31-08.

I am so delighted to have Serena (better known as 'Barefut') as a member of the Support Specialist Team. We are very lucky to have her join us and I know you will all continue to give your warm support. Serena/Barefut has also been one of our ISN Bloggers since October.
Warm wishes,

I always knew that you were' nt just a pretty face!

Well done my friend, you will be a great help and a good representitive. You have my entire backing at all times.

By the way I'm freezing my little body right now. I'd better go downstairs and sit in front of my lovely fire before I have the Mother of all Raynauds attacks!

Congratulations my friend -- keep up the good work!

Love and best wishes
