Making life easier for patients. Making strides toward a cure.
The Scleroderma Foundation Michigan Chapter is here to help.
Welcome to the Scleroderma Foundation Michigan Chapter website. Whether you're a scleroderma patient, have a friend or family member with scleroderma, or just want to learn more about the disease, we are so pleased you're here.
Click around to find information on scleroderma and its effects, strategies for coping with the disease, links for support, and news about fun and educational events sponsored by our chapter.
The mission of the Scleroderma Foundation is focused on four critical goals:
- SUPPORT: To help patients and their families cope with scleroderma through mutual support programs, peer counseling, physicians referrals, and educational information.
- EDUCATION: To promote awareness and education through patient and professional seminars, literature, and publicity campaigns.
- RESEARCH: To stimulate and support research to improve treatment and ultimately, find the cause and cure of scleroderma and related disease.
- ADVOCACY: To promote awareness and establish strong relationships with state and federal government representatives in conjunction with the Scleroderma Foundation to support legislative efforts that will augment the quality of life for scleroderma patients and their families.
We're here for you—and we'd love to hear from you.
