My journey with Dupuytren Disease started about 7 years ago when I noticed lumps and tightness in the palms of my hands. I had no idea what was happening in my hands or what to do about it. I started to have pain and some loss of strength in my hands. It scared me to think that I might lose my ability to play guitar or do other activities. After significant research, I was able to identify the condition and receive treatments at the appropriate time to control the progression. I was fortunate to catch it at this early stage and get appropriate treatment before I had lost a significant amount of mobility. Wanting to help others on their journey with the disease, Cindy worked with others to incorporate the Canadian Dupuytren Society (CDS) and we both are founding members. Cindy has been a board director since its inception and is now the Board Chair. We are excited to assist in launching the CDS's inaugural fundraising campaign. Please help support this campaign to support disease information, research, and clinical practice exchange.
Thank You! Jeff & Cindy
