Save the Date: Capitol Hill Day 2017

Attention, advocates! Please mark Wednesday, October 25, 2017 as this year’s Capitol Hill Day. Patients, caregivers, chapter leaders and foundation staff spend a full day meeting with local legislators to share personal accounts of how scleroderma affects lives. 

For more information about this year’s advocacy efforts, please visit our Advocacy page and sign up to receive email alerts about our action on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Registration and scholarship information will be announced later this spring. More information will also be available at the National Patient Education Conference this July.

There are many ways to be an advocate beyond going to Capitol Hill. Please consider signing up to receive action alerts for advocacy opportunities in your community.

Joy in Caregiving: Have Fun with your Loved One

Heart and flowersIf you're a caregiver for someone living with scleroderma or any other illness, it can be easy to lose sight of quality of life and spending time with one another. By connecting more through fun and relaxing activities and setting priorities, you can also be helping your family member or friend, as well as your own health and mental well-being.

AARP recently wrote an article to discuss this topic more. Read more here
