June is Scleroderma Awareness Month across Canada and the United States. June 29th is World Scleroderma Awareness Day. This is a special time to educate and raise public awareness about this little-known and often misunderstood orphan disease and stress the critical importance of funding research to find a cure and support quality of life for people living with scleroderma.
One of our objectives is to encourage as many people as possible to learn more about this disease which affects over 20,000 Canadians. SABC holds awareness and fundraising events throughout the province with our “Moving to Cure Scleroderma” campaigns.
