Oregon Support Groups

Support groups provide a forum to share feelings, concerns, information as well as a place to offer peer support and encouragement. Solicitations or research projects are not conducted at support group meetings.  

Our meetings often feature speakers specializing in scleroderma or related topics. To find out information about upcoming speakers or meeting topics, please check the calendar or contact the support group leader or chapter office.

We are a very open, friendly and knowledgeable group!  Family members or friends are always welcome to attend, and our support group meetings are always free of charge.

Next Support Group is our Annual Harvest Brunch on Nov. 11th!

RSVP is now closed, but everyone is still welcome to attend - we just ask that you save the food for the people who registered in advance!

This yearly event is hosted by the Oregon Chapter as an expression of gratitude to our chapter members.  We are so thankful for our wonderful scleroderma community!

At this meeting, we will be having a delicious brunch of crustless quiche, salad, fruit, and danishes with coffee.  We also have some great door prizes, including a gift certificate to ilani Casino Resort!

This is a nice opportunity to meet new members of our community, visit with old friends, and gain or share information with others. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

Time:  10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Location:  Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital - Wistar Morris room (inside main hospital, to the left of the lobby.)
  1015 NW 22nd Avenue, Portland, Oregon.
