I'm thrilled with the fabulous team spirit of our international scleroderma community!
From our launch on January 21, 2002, the nonprofit International Scleroderma Network (ISN) has been blessed with dozens of highly talented virtual volunteers who lend their expertise and open their hearts to those affected by scleroderma and related illnesses, throughout the world.
The ISN is a fitting outgrowth of the SCLERO.ORG website that I launched on January 7, 1998. From one humble page of scleroderma links, it has blossomed to over 5,000 pages in 23 languages. This has been made possible with dozens of amazing worldwide volunteers.
The ISN is dedicated to empowering people who are interested in scleroderma, by tackling stellar global research, support, education and awareness for scleroderma and related illnesses.
Our trilogy, Voices of Scleroderma book series features over 100 unique patient and caregiver stories and articles by scleroderma experts, in five languages, from 16 countries, in every volume.
I'm Founder and President of the International Scleroderma Network (ISN), the SCLERO.ORG website, Sclero Forums, the Scleroderma Webmaster's Association (SWA), and co-editor of the Voices of Scleroderma book series along with Judith Thompson Devlin.
I am also an ISN Webmaster, and an ISN Artist. My drawings, paintings, and photography illustrate many of the medical and patient stories on this site.
