The International Scleroderma Network celebrates it's 3rd anniversary on Friday, January 21, 2005! The nonprofit ISN was launched on 1-21-02, from the outgrowth of the Sclero.org website which was founded on 1-7-98 by Shelley Ensz.

The ISN operates the 1200+ page sclero.org website in 19 languages, publishes the Voices of Scleroderma book series, supports international peer-reviewed research, manages the 800+ member Sclero MSN online support community, offers a toll free hotline, and works to unite the online scleroderma community through leading the Scleroderma Webmaster's Association and it's popular "Scleroderma Sites to Surf !" program.

This is all made possible through the amazing international grassroots collaboration of thousands of scleroderma patients, caregivers, supporters, researchers, site visitors, members, donors, volunteers, and board members who work together via the internet to drive top quality information and support to the farthest corners of the globe.
