Date:1/23/2009

NeedyMeds.org and the Scleroderma Foundation announce a new source of information on scleroderma and the financial help available for those with the disease.

(Vocus) January 23, 2009 -- NeedyMeds, a national nonprofit, adds a new resource page to its website for those with scleroderma. The page is a scleroderma-specific source of help for those looking for information on the disease and financial resources to help assist with the cost of medications.

The resource page, created in collaboration with the Scleroderma Foundation, provides information on this rare and sometimes fatal disease including an overview, frequently asked questions, research, and more. In addition, the page lists financial resources that help with the cost of the drugs used to treat scleroderma, free clinics, and programs that provide other types of financial assistance.

This comprehensive information source is found at http://www.needys.org/resourcepages/scleroderma.shtml) or from the NeedyMeds homepage (http://www.needymeds.org).

NeedyMeds has the most comprehensive and reliable database of patient assistance programs available. All the information is free, easy to access, and updated regularly. There is no registration process or need for users to enter any personal information.

The Scleroderma Foundation offers an information and referral line, support groups, patient education. The Foundation is also the leading nonprofit provider of funds that support medical research to find the cause and cure for scleroderma. Links to the Scleroderma Foundation and its programs and services are also found on the resource page.

This non-profit joint collaboration was created in a time of shrinking resources to help enhance services provided by both NeedyMeds and the Scleroderma Foundation. Both organizations’ missions include service to those in need, and the resource page is an effort to reach an even greater group of people needing support and assistance.
