Virtual Walk 2020

We are going VIRTUAL!

This year, while we all practice social distancing, instead of gathering in the park to walk, run or ride as a group, we are encouraging everyone to participate in whatever capacity is comfortable for them.  If that means walking back and forth in your backyard, walking, running or biking around the block or down a quiet trail, climbing your stairs, using a treadmill or stationary bike, it is whatever works for you and your family team.

About Scleroderma Saskatchewan

The Scleroderma Association of Saskatchewan welcomes anyone who wishes to learn more about scleroderma – patients, family and friends.

We are a caring support group for scleroderma members in the province and provide support, information and friendship.

We strive to help patients and families cope with scleroderma work to promote awareness of scleroderma to the public and medical communities.  The Scleroderma Association of Saskatchewan is a registered charitable organization. Money raised goes towards research and awareness in Canada.  Tax receipts are issued for membership, donations and memorials.

We meet twice a year in the spring and in the fall.  The location of the meetings is usually Regina; however, we hope to host meeting in other Saskatchewan communities again.  Please contact us for more information if you or someone you know is interested.  We have a business meeting in the morning and enjoy lunch and visiting together at noon.  A guest speaker or some informative segment is featured in the afternoon. Members discuss concerns or helpful hints to cope with scleroderma during sharing time. Help is also available by telephone or email anytime.

Annual membership fees are $20.00. This helps the Scleroderma Association of Saskatchewan maintain its goals of patient and family support, education, awareness and fundraising for research. 

We try to keep our meetings informative and upbeat. Listening and talking to others with scleroderma really helps. You will meet some new friends. Most of all, you realize you are not alone. Everyone interested in scleroderma is welcome to attend.

Scleroderma Overview

What Is Scleroderma?

Scleroderma is a chronic, autoimmune disease of the connective tissue. The symptoms may either be visible, as when the skin is affected, or invisible, as when only internal organs are involved. Involvement may range from mild symptoms to life-threatening.

  • Scleroderma is not contagious.
  • Though not inherited, there may be a familial predisposition.
  • While seemingly rare, scleroderma is thought to be more prevalent than muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis or several other better-known diseases.
  • Scleroderma, or ‘systemic sclerosis,’ affects approximately 20 people in every 100,000.
  • The cause is unknown though some chemical and environmental links have been acknowledged.
