Scleroderma: Hope on the Horizon (Version 3) is a 2-minute must-see FLASH movie for visitors, members and supporters of our website, to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the nonprofit International Scleroderma Network (and the 9th anniversary of our SCLERO.ORG website).
This flash movie is based on a poem, "SD World" which is reprinted in its entirety and with the written permission of Fran Waranius. Fran was a patient and a member of the former SD World Email List which was run by Judy Tarro. Both Fran and Jude (Jude the Grouch) have passed away from scleroderma.
The 2001 version of this movie, produced by Shelley Ensz, originally promoted SD World Email List. The email list was founded by Judy Tarro, Sylvia Finegan, and Lyn Warnholz. Jude and Sylvia have since passed away, and Lyn has retired from list moderating.
Sylvia Finegan, very well known and loved in our online community as the co-moderator of the ever-popular SD World email list, passed away on 10-30-03. She will be very deeply missed by all who knew her. 10-30-03.
Scleroderma: Hope on the Horizon's FLASH Animation was created by Shelley Ensz, who is President of the International Scleroderma Network. The movie includes all original copyrighted photography, animation, and artwork.
