Volunteer-led support groups enable individuals with scleroderma to meet and exchange information with others who face similar challenges. Support Group leaders train with a comprehensive program developed with our partners at SPIN (Scleroderma Patient-centered Network). Support groups often feature speakers specializing in scleroderma or related topics.
The Texas Bluebonnet has support groups in Austin, Brazos Valley, Dallas/ Fort Worth, El Paso, Houston, and San Antonio. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our support groups are meeting virtually.
In addition, there are Foundation-affiliated support groups around the country. To access more information about any of our support groups, visit Find a Support Group and search based on your zip code and topics.
