There are approximately 2.5 million people in the world who have scleroderma — around 300,000 in the U.S. alone. Project Scleroderma – Beneath the Surface is an internet documentary led by 26-year-old Christy McCaffrey, of Philadelphia, to raise awareness of the disease that took her mother’s life in 2009.

Here are some tips on how to live well with scleroderma, from the Scleroderma Research Foundation.

Narrated by Bob Saget, the film follows McCaffrey as she establishes a global movement to support scleroderma patients while explaining the symptoms and prevalence of the disease and how it affected her mother.
