I'm privileged to be hosting a #scleroderma awareness conference next Tues 30th June @Europarl_EN with @sclerodermauk & FESCA.
What is Scleroderma?
Scleroderma is a connective tissue disease that affects the skin and other major internal organs.
It is an autoimmune condition, involving the overproduction of collagen and blood vessel damage. Excess collagen is laid down in these organs, which in turn results in scarring and reduced normal function of the affected organs.
Scleroderma can be life-threatening as the skin, joints, tendons, and parts of internal organs can all be affected.
Autoimmune conditions occur when the body’s tissues are attacked by its own immune system.
