Oregon Support Groups
Support Groups provide a forum to share feelings, concerns, information, and as well as a place to offer peer support and encouragement. Solicitations or research projects are not conducted at support group meetings.
Support groups often feature speakers specializing in scleroderma or related topics. To find out information about upcoming speakers or meeting topics, please check our website or contact the support group leader or chapter office.
This schedule is subject to change. Before attending a group for the first time, please call to verify date and time. Groups are free of charge and open to everyone.

Next Support Group Meeting is September 12th!
Our next support group meeting in Portland is September 12th, 2015. The guest speaker and location for this upcoming meeting are still to be determined. However, we would highly encourage you to come to our Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma benefit walk on July 11th in Happy Valley, Oregon! It's a fun event with raffle prizes, awards, and a free lunch - and the proceeds go towards scleroderma research!
