Biking the Grand – 100 Km for Scleroderma
On Sunday, June 12th, Nataly Woolfrey and her husband, Adam Woolfrey will be cycling 100km in the Tour De Grand, in Cambridge Ontario www.cambridgetourdegrand.com
They will be raising funds for scleroderma research, and awareness about the illness.
Nataly’s mother, Heidi Koester, was diagnosed with Diffuse Scleroderma 14 years ago. Since her diagnosis, Scleroderma has caused Heidi to face several health challenges, including heart surgery, lung complications requiring her to be on 24-hour oxygen, the pain associated with Raynaud’s syndrome, and a host of other difficulties related to pulmonary hypertension.
“My mom is in constant pain. Every day, she has several health challenges to deal with. She never complains though, and has such a positive attitude toward life. She truly is an inspiration to me. But it is hard to see and know that she suffers – scleroderma is such a terrible illness, and so much more awareness is needed.”
