Support in your community
A diagnosis of scleroderma is scary. That’s why it’s so very important to learn as much as you can, and connect with others who understand what you are going through.
Scleroderma Manitoba hosts support groups for scleroderma patients and their families and supporters. Whether newly diagnosed, or have been living with scleroderma for some time, it is extremely helpful to get to know others who are living with the disease, ask questions, share concerns, ideas, learn some tips, and support each other.
We are now holding online support groups due to Covid-19.
Next Scleroderma Manitoba Support Group Meeting:
January 16, 2021, 10:30 am CST
Please plan to join us at 10:30 am, January 16 for this virtual support group meeting. Whether you are newly diagnosed, or have been living with scleroderma for some time, a caregiver, partner, friend, family member or supporter, all are welcome to attend this virtual meeting.
We will be meeting using the GoToMeeting online platform.
If you are interested in attending this meeting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 204 256-0225.
