Bob Saget tells the story of his sister Gay (Hope in the movie) and her struggles with the disease Scleroderma
23 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very sad movie, but Scleroderma is a very sad disease. This movie shows an accurate portrayal of what Scleroderma can do to a person and while it can be scary, it can also make those who have health or even have a milder form of the disease realize how precious life is. I have had Scleroderma since I was a child and every time I watch this movie it makes me feel grateful that I am still alive as well as hope for the future and the possibility of finding a cure. I thank Bob Saget for telling his sister's story in this movie so as to inform others of this terrible disease. I also hope that this story will touch the hearts of those who see it and that information will be passed on so as to possibly help find a cure.
