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.
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.
