Texas 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.

Support groups often feature speakers specializing in scleroderma or related topics. To find out information about upcoming speakers or meeting topics, please contact your local support group leader.  Also, if you would like to inquire about ways to help start a support group in your area, you may send an email to the Texas Bluebonnet Chapter at Txchapter@scleroderma.org. or call our chapter office in Allen, Tx at 972-396-9400.

Please note that the schedule below 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.
