The greatest attribute Cheynne brings to Scleroderma Australia is a compassion for people with Scleroderma, their family and friends to bring about more favorable conditions and improved outcomes. Her passion is to offer support, advocate for others as necessary, and to gain knowledge and raise community awareness of scleroderma. Her support to our Closed Facebook Page has been instrumental, and we appreciate her assistance in all she does. Of particular interest to Cheyenne is fundraising in order to support research into the condition with the object of finding a cure.
