    Cheryl F

    Hello all:

    I don’t stop by to post often but today I found myself sitting around the house with not much to do so I thought I would stop in and say hello to RBF friends old and new.

    My daughter, Jessica, came home for a pit stop on her way to the Sierras to go snow skiing with a few of her friends. That may not seem like a big deal, but to those who know her story, one of severe raynauds that almost cost her a finger before starting AP, well, the fact that today, more than 12 years after her first symptoms of scleroderma hit, she is up snow skiing, that seemed like reason to celebrate and reflect.

    She was a pretty sick kiddo back then, now, those closest to her, even though they themselves are MD’s have no idea she has systemic scleroderma. They do know she has raynauds and they tease her about her funny red, white and blue finger tips. It doesn’t bother her one bit.

    I hope you all are progressing on your journey to wellness!

    All the best,



    So wonderful to hear Cheryl. I couldn’t imagine seeing my child go through something like this but am so glad to hear you are beaming and she is doing well.

    Thanks for sharing Cheryl. It is always great to hear success stories. For some reason I thought that AP would help with Raynauds as well? I don’t know why I assumed that. I am glad to hear that she is doing so well.
