Hi. You must have your profile set to private on FB as you don't come up on the search. I am a 38 yr old woman with both Raynauds & systemic diffuse scleroderma living in Aust. I'm about to have a stem cell transplant so happy to chat to anyone that would like to. :-)

wow Danielle... your details sound like me but I am in the UK !! Luckily I responded to mycophenolate back in 1999 - 04, and so did not have to have the stem cell transplant scheduled for me !! I have recently read an article which gave very positive results about stem cell transplant therapy for systemic sclerosis... I think I read it on the US scleroderma society's site - so check it out !! Presumably you will have had the treatment by now ??? as you posted in April .... How are you ?? How was it ?? I do so hope that you have the same encouraging results as those in the stem cell transplant study.... Blessings to you my brave friend !! everytime I used to take a mycohpenolate tablet with the threat that if it did not work I would be having the transplant, I used to tell myself that 'this tablet is going to work' and then I would swallow it !! Happy winter solstice to you :) x

all i can suggest is to e mail me your details and i will try to find you on facebook and add you as friends then i can add you into the groups,, there are a few some for just ranauds and others for scleroderma and some for just information on scleroderma issues,, these groups have helped me no end,, before i had their support i didn't know which way to turn
