JUNE, Scleroderma Awareness Month 

June is Scleroderma Awareness Month across Canada and the United States. This is a special time to educate and raise public awareness about this little-known and often misunderstood orphan disease and stress the critical importance of funding research to find a cure and support quality of life for people living with scleroderma.  

One of our objectives is to encourage as many people as possible to learn more about this disease which affects 22,000 Canadians. To achieve its public outreach and awareness-raising goals, Scleroderma Manitoba holds an Annual Walk for Scleroderma.
