JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST THE DISEASE THAT BURNS THE BODY
FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
SJS Canada is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting survivors, family friends, and caregivers in the SJS/TEN community.
SJS Canada was born in the heart of a SJS/TEN survivor, Sonia Whyte-Croasdaile, in 2012. She battled SJS/TEN for almost 6 weeks and survived a near-death experience. While in the hospital, she was informed that SJS/TEN was a very rare condition.
To her dismay, she faced multiple obstacles in her quest for psychological support. There were no resources available in Canada to support her journey to recovery. The local doctors and specialists she visited had not encountered SJS before. Some had not even heard of the disease. She had no one or nowhere to turn to for support as she encountered drastic changes to her physical appearance.
Sonia purposed within her heart that no other Canadian should travel this journey alone. With the help of her supportive family and friends, SJS Canada was formed.
