Support Group Leader: Meet Kelly!


Kelly Kohls has battled scleroderma for the past 13 years and is dedicated to learning how to more effectively deal with the hardships and struggles that accompany the disease. Over the past few years, Kelly has become a mother, a runner and a fitness coach - constantly pushing herself and achieving new milestones she never thought possible. As a patient who once felt she was defined by her disease, Kelly truly enjoys helping others regain their life after receiving a scleroderma diagnosis. Feel free to connect with her and her support group to learn how her change in mindset and lifestyle has impacted her self confidence, health and relationships.
