Missy K: Diffuse Scleroderma
I am a twenty-seven-year-old female. I was diagnosed with lung fibrosis five years ago.
In July 2005, I was diagnosed with Diffuse Scleroderma.
I am on chemotherapy and often feel sick. I had never heard of scleroderma before and would like to correspond with other sufferers.
