In this video from Grace Sherry shared in 2013, we get to meet Shannie Carnline. Shannie is a 16-year-old with morphea – a form of scleroderma where the connective tissues in the skin become thick and hard.
Shannie explains how difficult her life has been and how her medications make her tired and nauseous. She then reveals how she hopes to help children and other teenagers who have morphea by establishing a summer camp for them.
