National Scleroderma Awareness Month Bracelets
Scleroderma is a chronic disease that impacts connective tissue. “Scleroderma” comes from the merging of two Greek words—“sclero,” meaning hard, and “derma,” meaning skin. One of the most noticeable of the many symptoms of the disease is a hardening of the skin. Because the disease has no known cause or cure, research is of the utmost importance. So June has been designated as National Scleroderma Awareness Month. To better get the word out, consider National Scleroderma Awareness Month bracelets, as the day is aimed at educating the public about the disease and at raising funds for the all-important research efforts.
Use Bracelets for National Scleroderma Awareness Month Activities
During National Scleroderma Awareness Month, many activities are focused on raising awareness and getting the word out about the disease. For example, there are walk-a-thons that people can participate in. But one of the foundation’s biggest requests is that people connect with other people to tell stories about the disease and educate them, especially during National Scleroderma Awareness Month. One of the best ways to get people talking is with eye-catching accessories like silicone bracelets. Wristbands in teal, the color of the cause, and can include sayings such as “Support Scleroderma Research” and “Hard Word. Harder Disease.”
What Is Scleroderma?
Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease that impacts connective tissue. Victims of the disease can suffer from hardening of the skin, stiff joints, digestive issues, lung scarring, and kidney failure. According to The American College of Rheumatology, about 75,000 to 100,000 people in the U.S. suffer from this disease, and most are women aged 30 to 50. Although there is no cure for the disease, promising research indicates that there may soon be better treatments and perhaps a cure.
