What is Scleroderma?
Scleroderma is a rare autoimmune disease that causes excess collagen accumulation.
The word scleroderma literally means ‘hard skin’ and is derived from the Greek words “sclerosis” meaning hardness and “derma” meaning skin. It is this thickening of the skin that is the most characteristic feature of scleroderma. Less visible, but of major importance, are the vascular lesions that occur in small blood vessels and which may affect major organs. The overproduction of collagen causes the opposite effect, resulting in a thickening, hardening and scarring of tissues. These affected tissues can be further compromised by reduced blood flow through the small blood vessels.
We are committed to promoting increased public awareness, advancing patient wellness and supporting research in Ontario's scleroderma community. SSO is a registered charity and was established in 2007 with one main priority: support people with scleroderma in their quest for information, community connection, advice, and yes, a cure!
Core Pillars: Patient Support - Research - Advocacy - Awareness
Using our Core Pillars as a guiding measure, SSO will work towards:
1. Developing continuous resources for patients and facilitating patient-centred peer-to-peer support groups.
2. Facilitating and granting funding requests for external research geared towards scleroderma treatment.
3. Increasing awareness of scleroderma through annual campaigns and fundraising events across Ontario.
