The scleroderma support groups exists to help those suffering the disease and welcomes participation by anyone who has contracted it or who has a friend’s or family connection to it.
We are based in Lower Hutt / Wellington, New Zealand but welcome participation regardless of geographical location.
Scleroderma, also known as systemic sclerosis, is an autoimmune, connective tissue disease that can affect many organs of the body. It is a serious disease which can have a significant impact on patients and their families
The group offers support and information to participants and meets regularly. At alternate meetings we invite guest speakers who can shed more light on treating and coping with scleroderma.
