Scleroderma is a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. It often coincides with other autoimmune diseases.

In a 2001 USA TODAY article, Alexander opened up about his sister’s scleroderma: “It is a painful, uncomfortable and debilitating disease. Karen was diagnosed 12 years ago and held a job until just 4 years ago. Her spirit was willing, but she could not do the work. At one point, it was difficult for her to walk down a hallway.”
