Support Groups

advice.jpgThey know just how you feel.

No one knows what you're going through like others with scleroderma. Our Support Groups provide a forum to share feelings, concerns, and information, and a place to give and receive support and encouragement. Michigan Chapter Support Groups also include educational components. NO solicitations or research projects are conducted at Support Group meetings.
