About Us

The Scleroderma Association of BC was founded in 1984 by five patients diagnosed with scleroderma in varied forms. Today we provide support to about 450 patients and their families throughout BC.
We exist to promote patient outreach, support and education; to create public awareness and understanding of scleroderma, and to encourage and support research.

The Scleroderma Association of British Columbia is an all-volunteer, registered charity.
