Rute's story

Rute initially found it challenging to accept her diagnosis of scleroderma but found strength in motherhood. This motivation has helped her adapt to the symptoms of scleroderma. In this short film, we can see Rute at the beach, where she often goes to relax and spend time with her husband and daughter.
