National Sunflower Day- 6th March 2024

National Sunflower Day will raise awareness for Scleroderma, and occur on March the 6th. We're LIGHTING UP AUSTRALIA (with your help!) with a vibrant yellow glow for our annual SHINE Like A Sunflower Campaign, and encouraging people to WEAR YELLOW.

Some 6,000 people across Australia are living with scleroderma right now. This rare chronic connective tissue condition shortens life expectancy by more than 20 years and can be life-threatening. There’s currently no cure for scleroderma.

This year, Scleroderma Australia is bringing a golden glow to more than 120 iconic locations across Australia. Find one near you and help us continue to support and advocate for people living with scleroderma, improve treatments, and keep searching for a cure.

With your generous help, our goal is to raise $120,000 to help raise essential funds dedicated to scleroderma nurses and scleroderma research. We all know that the right medical support at the right time can make an enormous difference to recovery, and our scleroderma specialist nurses do just that!
