Illness, pain or just the shock of being diagnosed with a serious medical condition can hinder patients’ ability to understand their treatment options or make decisions about their care.

The month of June is Scleroderma Awareness Month around the world, and would like to encourage each and everyone of you, to become advocates by raising awareness and educating others about this often progressive, autoimmune connective tissue disease - right here in Trinidad & Tobago.

For the month (and beyond) we have several activities planned as we go out to the general public to educate them about the characteristics and pitfalls of Scleroderma, and demonstrate just how they can get involved in bringing about the support needed by patients and their families.

With a positive attitude you see the bright side of life, become optimistic and expect the best to happen. It is certainly a state of mind that is well worth developing and strengthening.

taken from http://www.flickr.com/photos/bmeabroad/3728116903/ via creative commonsOur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone.
