Support by Kids for Kids
For kids and teens of all ages who have juvenile scleroderma to exchange information, share feelings, form friendships, vent frustrations, talk about fears, express your anger and encourage others by becoming “keypals” email pen-pals.
The JSDN will connect kids and teens by age. If there is a preference, kids and teens may be connected to other kids and teens by their type of juvenile scleroderma.
The JSDN will not post any names or email addresses. If your kid or teen would like to exchange an email address to other kids and teens for support, please click here.
Big Buddies Support
From time to time younger kids are in need to have a big buddy. Younger kids can ask any question and find older kids who have been there and willing to offer their support by exchange of email.
The JSDN will not post any names or email addresses. If your younger child needs a big buddy, or if your child would like to volunteer as a big buddy, please click here.
The JSDN is in need of volunteer big buddies!
No one over 21 please.
