Scleroderma Society of Ontario

Group Name: Scleroderma Society of Ontario

Description: The Scleroderma Society of Ontario is committed to promoting increased public awareness, advancing patient wellness and supporting research in scleroderma.

As a strategy to help successfully manage the signs and symptoms of scleroderma, and as a way for patients to stay informed about medical treatments and lifestyle choices that effectively relieve or delay the progress of disease symptoms, many new patients find it helpful to seek support from other people diagnosed with scleroderma. It is important that scleroderma patients receive good medical care and support from as many different sources as possible: health care professionals, family and friends, and others living with scleroderma. Knowing that one is not alone in their diagnosis and management of a chronic systemic autoimmune disease may be helpful, as it provides the opportunity to build connections with others who are learning to manage, with scleroderma, the variety of issues that affect their daily lives.
