t.v. commercial for heating oil

6 posts in this topic

The other night I was watching t.v. when I heard the word scleroderma mentioned. I wasn't really paying attention but caught the end of it and saw it was for people who need help heating their homes. I have seen the commercial two times since and it show black and white photos of this couple who have been through grade school together to old age.He had to retired when he got cancer and now has scleroderma as well. They showed his hands all curled under and his wife having to do everything for him. They needed financial assistance for heating their home so Joe for oil delivered some to them,

 

I live in New Jersey. It is probably a regional ad. At least the word is getting out.

Hey miocean,

 

Last night I saw it here, too! Cool, though I do hope that it doesn't frighten anyone into thinking that everyone with scleroderma has as much hand involvement as the gentleman in the commercial.

 

Joe Kennedy used to be my congressman. He came by our house for tea at least a couple of times years back before I lived here, so I never met him, but my friends who did say he was a nice guy and very down-to-earth.

 

Hugs,

Hi miocean:

 

I also live in NJ and saw the ad but wasn't really paying attention. I'll have to listen next time.

Thanks.

I just saw it this morning and wasn't sure that I saw it correctly so I logged onto my computer and found it. Atleast the mention of scleroderma is getting out there.

 

Hugs,

Lisa

Six years. ago I would ask new doctors or nurses if they had any other Ssc. patients and they would always answer no or what is it? Now it seem everyone has heard of it and all my doctors have other patients...alice1
