Until we have a cure, the Scleroderma Research Foundation is committed to funding the very best research. That is why we are asking you to support our Spring Match Campaign. It is the best way we know how -- to turn every dollar donated into two! Please watch this short video about the Lung Trajectory project. It explains how much your support matters.

The 2018 SRF Spring Research Challenge Project is here! This year, we are supporting the #Scleroderma Lung Disease Trajectory Study under the direction of Drs. Antony Rosen, Livia Casciola-Rosen, and Scott Zeger at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In the Scleroderma Lung Disease Trajectory Study, @hopkinsmedicine researchers will analyze long-term clinical data on thousands of patients collected over the last 30+ years at the Johns Hopkins Scleroderma Center in combination with employing new techniques for identifying additional scleroderma autoantibodies and cutting-edge bioinformatics capabilities to more precisely define scleroderma subgroups. The study could be an important step toward more personalized medicine for scleroderma patients and improve our ability to conduct research studies and scleroderma clinical trials. Support this incredible project and have your donation matched dollar for dollar up to $75,000 through April. Click the link in the bio to give now!

Today we would like to celebrate Amy Hewitt (on left with daughter Lauren), who has been the SRF’s fearless leader for 10 years, as she embarks on other adventures.

Meet SRF Cure Crew Member, Lori Butler! Lori is a mom, a friend of the SRF, a fitness enthusiast and a #scleroderma patient. A Northern California resident, she and her family participate in their local #stpatricksday fun run and for several years, she’s turned her love of fitness into a fundraiser to support the SRF research program. Lori and her husband, Mark, have also served on the #coolcomedyhotcuisine San Francisco event committee. They say it takes a village to achieve great things and we couldn’t agree more. It’s the passion and commitment from our community that will help find a cure. We are grateful to Lori and all of our #CureCrew Members and volunteers who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of patients. If you are interested in becoming a Cure Crew member, please contact us directly at
