Please support my dream of a life free of psoriatic disease by making a personal donation as I run with Team NPF Run!
I was diagnosed in October 2015 with psoriasis and with psoriatic arthritis a short time later. I currently struggle with skin issues, but also with joint pain that affects my back, fingers, and feet.
I love to run and I live to train, so this chronic autoimmune disease makes a huge impact on my life. I do not have a "target" race picked out, as this disease is still very much active within me. Flares can errupt without notice and I have had more than one race ruined at the last minute due to a flare. Rather than focus on a goal race, I am choosing to run when I can, as often as I can, as far as I can, and whenever my body is cooperative. I hope to raise money and awareness for this disease as I do so.
There is currently no cure for this disease. The most we can hope for is long-term remission. I am so not there yet, but I hope to be there one day. If you would like to throw a few bucks towards making this happen, please consider a donation.
All money raised by Team NPF Run provides people with psoriatic disease the services they need to live well, while funding research for a cure.
