Support Me

My sister-in-law suffers from Psoriatic Arthritis and I will be riding 63 miles to help raise funds to find a cure.  I feel passionate about this cause because I don't think there is enough awareness about Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis. She has allowed me to share part of her story below. 

"My Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis both first presented when I was 17. Psoriatic Arthritis has affected almost every aspect of my life. Psoriatic disease has at times been front and center in my education, my career choices, my reproductive decisions, my social life, my friendships and my marriage. Psoriatic Arthritis has attacked my spine, sacroiliac joints, hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, feet, toes and ribs. It's resulted in crippling fatigue and several comorbid diseases too. I'm only able to function because of modern medicine. I'm grateful for every innovation and advancement that improves my life and the lives of other psoriatic patients. I feel strongly that the National Psoriasis Foundation is our best advocate for funding research that leads to new treatments and better understanding of the disease process, educating patients and caregivers, and fighting for our needs in government.”

Please support my dream of a life free of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis for Mary and others by making a donation today.

All money raised by Team NPF Cycle provides people with psoriatic disease the services they need to live well, while funding research for a cure.
