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 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.
Any adult or child undergoing treatment
or being followed by a health professional within the Province of Nova Scotia is
eligible to apply to the Patient Support Program for financial assistance.
Expenses for those living with Scleroderma vary in frequency, type and amount. All expenses will be considered by the Patient Support Program for full or partial reimbursement.
Patients requesting financial assistance are asked to apply in writing. All requests will be reviewed by a committee of the Society.
A copy of expense receipts must accompany all claims.
