S.H.O.U.T. International: Scleros Helping Others Unite Together
S.H.O.U.T. International's sole purpose is to provide aid to qualified patients and/or families living with the disease Scleroderma.
Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease with no known cause or cure. It affects the skin, blood vessels, joints, tissue, and muscles of the body by causing hardness and tightness. It can affect ALL major organs in the body i.e., heart, lungs, kidneys, esophagus, stomach, colon and liver. Scleroderma is a chronic, progressive disease and in its worst forms is fatal.
A sclero is anyone who is diagnosed with Scleroderma. S.H.O.U.T. International is founded by scleroderma patients or as we like to refer to ourselves as "scleros".
Scleroderma knows no age, even children are victims. No parent should have to watch their child suffer everyday.
