The 20% – Men’s Virtual Support Group


The 20%: A Virtual Support Group for Males Living with Scleroderma

Hosted on Zoom: 4pm Pacific Time, on the fourth Wednesday of each month


Scleroderma diagnoses are less common amongst men. In fact, only 20% of the patient population is made up of males. 

The National Scleroderma Foundation has designed a support group especially for males with scleroderma. Join and you’ll learn scleroderma tips and resources, and find support from others in your position. In each meeting a different topic is focused on and discussed- from mental health to intimacy, and so much more.

Virtual Scleroderma Support Groups: Breaking Barriers for Connection and Education

National Scleroderma Foundation

Scleroderma support groups serve as valuable resources, offering education, emotional support, and connections for those affected by the disease. Unfortunately, geographical constraints, health challenges, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic can limit access to these vital networks.

Fortunately, The National Scleroderma Foundation has established a range of virtual support groups, effectively dismantling these barriers and fostering increased participation

The National Scleroderma Foundation’s virtual support groups not only prioritize safety and accessibility but also facilitate more focused discussions, enabling individuals from specific demographics to connect and share their unique experiences with Scleroderma.
