Scleroderma Walk

Caroline, friends and family in Texas participated in the Stepping Out To Cure Scleroderma Walk held at Grapevine Mills Mall yesterday. She raised nearly $3,500 for the event, which goes towards research for her condition. Very proud of her and grateful to everyone who donated.

Lots of people came out to support her and everyone had a great time. The most exciting news from the day, however, was that Caroline walked the track herself - with only one stop - nearly a mile around the mall. This is a huge accomplishment and one that shouldn't be taken lightly. I get worn out walking that mall and I'm a professional! Couldn't be happier about her progress.

Caroline endures 30+ meds a day, a structured diet and more strain on her body than any of us could really grasp. Her completing the walk brings tears to my eyes and hope for her life - living with and conquering both Scleroderma and Pulmonary Hypertension.

Cari, you bring inspiration to us all!
