I am overwhelmed with web sites and information to help me or explain the problem but this is what I want to know: How many new cases are coming up now from people that were at the World Trade Center?
I was there along with co-workers that are very ill now. Since environmental toxins could be a cause for scleroderma, it gives reason to believe that is how it started for me.
Thank you for bringing this to everyone's' attention.
