For me personally this is so ironic. I watched the film she was in, for hope, a week before diagnosis so when the rheumatologist uttered the word scleroderma the face of the stricken woman floated before me and I knew immediately and all at once what I was up against.

Glad Dana's profile has recently raised and that in turn she's raising ours.
