Devastatingly Nichola has recently passed away, having suffered with Scleroderma for a number of years. As a family we have decided to do all we can to support Scleroderma and Raynauds UK; to raise awareness of Scleroderma and to enable the charity to support other families also affected by the illness. As a family we ask that anyone wishing to send flowers for Nichola, could donate to SRUK in lieu of flowers. Anyone wishing to make donations in cash on the day will also be able to do so.
Following on from this we plan to host a fundraising event and do the Great North Run in Memory of Nichola and in aid of SRUK.
Scleroderma is a devastating condition, not only to the individual diagnosed but also to family and friends. Scleroderma is a rare autoimmune condition, which involves the overproduction of collagen. The body is attacking its own tissues causing hardening and scarring of the skin and internal organs. 'Normal' life can become a struggle and the simplest of tasks can become impossible as the condition reduces the normal function of affected areas. Scleroderma has no cure, it is a life limiting condition and can be life threatening.
Anyone who knew Nichola will know that she was an amazing woman with a heart of gold, and she will be in our hearts forever.
