Scleroderma Victoria and The Grand are sponsoring an Italian Feast Charity lunch to go towards research into Scleroderma- a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune diseases.
“Sclero” means hard, “derma” means skin. Hardening of the skin is one of the most visible manifestations of the disease.
June 29th is World Scleroderma Day, signifying the death of Swiss-German Artist Paul Klee who died of scleroderma on this day in 1940.
Scleroderma is not contagious, not infectious, not cancerous, not malignant and generally not hereditary! Scleroderma Victoria receives no funding from Federal or State Governments into research to find a cure for this insidious disease affecting more than 6000 Australians, young and old.
