Cathy has been a leader of the Kankakee Support Group since 2013, and loves the support and welcoming energy her group has for new members. Like many new members, she attended her first meeting by herself and didn't know what to expect. Her best advice for those affected by scleroderma is to "ask questions of your doctors if you don't understand or agree. Don't be afraid to switch doctos if you aren't comfortable...Spread the word about this disease so people can become more educated." Cathy is excited to lead this group of inspiring patients, caregivers, and supporters!
