Each year Eczema Awareness month is celebrated in November by Canadians with the help of the Eczema Society of Canada – an outstanding organization for their efforts in eczema education and supporting patients. You can read more about Executive Director, Amanda Cresswell-Melville’s, personal journey with eczema here. It’s easy to see where her passion for helping others with eczema stems from.
So, how can YOU help?
- Join a support group or become a Support Volunteer with ESC. Take a look at the Society’s list of Canadian support groups and leaders or contact the Society about volunteering as a Support Volunteer and starting your own group.
- Download some of their educational materials and distribute to caregivers at school, daycare, etc.
- Donate to the Eczema Society of Canada to support eczema awareness all year-long.
