Dear Stacey,

I am so sorry to know that your mom has scleraderma. We had an 8 year old little girl at our church who had that same disease. Everyone thought that she had been in a car wreck or something. If you made an imaginary line down her little body it was real strange. You would think it was two different people. The whole left side of her body was affected by the disease. She had to have her left leg amputated. Her left arm and hand was so much smaller than her right and her face was real disfigured on the left. Like I said if you made and imaginary line down her face to divide it and only looked at one side you would never know it was the same person. She was a precious little girl and real open about what was wrong with her. You know how curious other kids can be. We go to a different church now so I don't know how she is now. I know her disease had been in remission but had just become active again. I would love to know how she is doing. I am sorry to hear about your mom though. It makes what we go through seem like nothing. I will be praying for her and you and strength for you to make it through this awful disease. If there is ever anything I can do, whether it is just to listen or to pray, please let me know.

Love, Jenny
