Here’s an amazing story from a chronic illness patient. Wyatt Wright a.k.a (Wyatt The Warrior),  a 9-year-old young man diagnosed with localized scleroderma (linear) at the age of 8.

Scleroderma is a rare condition characterized by the hardening and tightening of the skin and connective tissue. In addition to the physical symptoms of scleroderma, suffering from a rare disease can be lonely, which is why knowing other people going through the same as you can help you cope better with it. Therefore, the Scleroderma Society of Canada has shared this video with testimonies of patients telling their stories of survival and how they cope daily with scleroderma.

“Scleroderma is a HARD word to say, but it is an even HARDER disease to be affected by. An autoimmune disease with no known cause or cure, scleroderma affects people of all ages, genders, and ethnicities,” explains the video shared by the YouTube channel of the Scleroderma Society of Canada. “This video explored the lives of several scleroderma patients, in which they discuss their challenges, as well as what gives them hope.”

Bob Saget is a well-recognized comedian, TV host, and actor. But what one might not know is that he is also an advocate for scleroderma.

How and why did he become involved with scleroderma?
