Financial Advice Services
|International Medical Relief Agencies|
Every nonprofit agency in the U.S. has a different scope and mission, as defined and limited by the IRS. The nonprofit International Scleroderma Network is authorized to provide research, support, education and awareness for scleroderma and related illnesses.
However, we are not authorized to provide personal financial assistance for any reason, or to assist with amnesty or visas. We cannot make medical appointments, engage in political lobbying, assist with personal or class action lawsuits or disability claims, prescribe medications or treatments, import or export any medications or relief supplies, nor review personal medical records. Such needs are covered by other authorized nonprofit agencies, but each of them is necessarily limited in their scope and ability to help in a particular situation.
