Dana Delany: Smoking Hot Spokesperson

By Wyatt Earp | October 25, 2008

If she doesn’t make you aware of scleroderma, no one will.

BALTIMORE, Maryland — Hollywood glitz may pay Dana Delany’s bills, but her “most life-affirming role” was a lot less glamorous.

In 1996, the Emmy Award winner and “Desperate Housewives” actress played a patient dying of scleroderma in the ABC TV movie, “For Hope.”

The film was based on the true story of actor/comedian Bob Saget’s sister, Gay, who died of the chronic, degenerative disease.

The role led Delany to join the movement to find a cure for the illness. Today, with scleroderma patient Luke Evnin helping to lead the efforts, Delany said that people are increasingly aware of the disease and working toward a cure.

Symptoms for scleroderma, Greek for “hard skin,” can include skin thickening or tightness. It has no known cause and in most serious cases, it can be life-threatening. Scleroderma can cause abnormal growth of connective tissue and potentially harm blood vessels and internal organs. (H/T - CNN)

Strangely enough, when I see Dana, I get a case of “hard skin.”

Heh, I am so going to Hell.

    What was that one movie she was in? … It’s on the tip of my tongue… Kurt Russel was in it playing some badass… Ugh! I hate when that happens. Maybe one of you will remember it.
