I am really sad since I do not know what to do about it.

When Life Hands You Lemons Make Lemonade, painting by Shelley EnszHello, it is very difficult to talk about this, since I had never paid attention to this illness.

When I was a kid I got a spot on my right leg, which was biopsied. They told me it was morphea, and I followed a treatment with creams, but it did not work. Now I am twenty-five years old, and that spot has grown throughout my right leg and on one side of my belly button.

I am really sad since I do not know what to do about it.

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.
