Linda G: Aunt of Scleroderma Patient

Do not be afraid to say I love you.

For Linda G. by Shelley Ensz I had never heard of this disease until my nephew told me my niece had it one day and I broke down and cried as she is so young.

I read Wes C's story posted on this web site, about his sister. It tore my heart apart. Love is truly the answer for any illness or disease. You should tell each other you love them, no matter what the age. Love cures so much more. Love is always there.

Growing up is hard enough, but if you are not told that you are loved that is even harder. Love is to be shared. It is a gift.

I want Wes and Michelle to know I love them both. I love life for however long it may be. Love enhances life. Life is a gift.

Share love with one another and do not be afraid to say I love you, because one day it may be to late.

SCLERO.ORG was the world's leading nonprofit for trustworthy research, support, education and awareness for scleroderma and related illnesses from 1998 to 2021. It was a grassroots movement from the original Scleroderma from A to Z web site, which was founded by Shelley Ensz. We were a 501(c)(3) U.S.-based public charitable foundation. We closed this web site and our nonprofit agency in April 2021.
