died from Scleroderma an autoimmune disease which means that it is a condition in which the body's immune system attacks its own tissues. The normal role of the immune
system is to provide protection from invaders such as viruses. In autoimmune disorders, this ability to distinguish foreign from self is compromised. As immune cells attack the body's own tissue, inflammation and damage result. Scleroderma (the name means "hard skin") can vary a great deal in terms of severity. For some, it is a mild condition; for others it can be lifethreatening. Although there are medications to slow down disease progression and help with symptoms, there is as yet no cure for scleroderma.
There are two main forms of scleroderma: systemic (systemic sclerosis, SSc) that usually affects the internal organs or internal systems of the body as well as the skin, and localized that affects a local area of skin either in patches (morphea) or in a line down an arm or leg (linear scleroderma), or as a line down the forehead (scleroderma en coup de sabre). It is very unusual for localized scleroderma to develop into the systemic form.
