Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Walks:

October 7, 2017 - Houston's Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Walk at Bear Creek Park in Houston has been cancelled!

Our hearts go out to all those on the Texas coast that have been affected by Hurricane Harvey!  Due to the massive flooding in the Houston area, we are sad to say that our walk has been postponed to an unknown future date. 

The Texas Chapter will be sure to keep you all updated as soon as we are able to secure a new date for this event, however, we anticipate at this time that our rescheduled walk will most likely take place in 2018.  Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this, or any of our other events.

Chapter Support Group Meetings:

Greetings Friends,

A lot of new changes are coming to Texas in 2017. As you will see from our Support Group page, we are excited about the two new merges that have taken place in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and in the Greater Houston areas. Further, we welcome both the Lubbock and Corpus Christi Support Groups to the family. In moving forward, we hope to continue to grow our numbers to offer even more groups in places that currently do not offer the support needed by so many. 

One of the projects we have been working hard on, is the creation of new informative brochures that will allow us to spread awareness throughout the state of the many services available. Please take a moment to download and share from the links below. It is our hope that we may always find ways to reach new audiences. We are forever grateful for your continued support and participation. As always, we look forward to the growth to come!
