‘Help find a cure:’ Walk raises money to fight scleroderma, a potentially deadly autoimmune disease of the skin

GERMANTOWN — It’s a disease that not many people are aware of, let alone able to pronounce. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease that affects the skin and can be fatal in extreme cases. There is no cure.

“We’re out here today because of a dear friend who lost her life to scleroderma,” said Michele Fuchs, organizer of Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma.

Kinderberg Park in Germantown was transformed Sunday morning, Aug. 19 from a place of play — to a place of action.
