Meetings are educational and a great opportunity to meet others living with scleroderma who understand what you are going through. You are not alone.

Marcy and Sedalia Designs will donate a portion of your purchase to the Scleroderma Foundation. Marcy also created special footprint earrings just for the Stepping Out Walk that you can still get by contacting our Chapter office at cochapter@scleroderma.org or 303-806-6686.
