David Shea Memorial

Patient Support Program

Living with Scleroderma often leads to unexpected expenses, creating a financial burden on families to the point where patients may opt to decline

recommended treatments. To assist with these financial hardships, the

Scleroderma Society of Nova Scotia has established a patient support program, named in memory of David Shea.

David Shea

David Shea passed away at the age of 33 while living with Scleroderma. The Patient Support Program has been established in David’s memory and in honour of his

work with the Society.
