Thanks for checking out my fundraising page for Team NPF Cycle in the Willamette Valley! It means a lot to me!!!
I’m also grateful you’re considering making a donation on my behalf to the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) to help with its very important mission to drive efforts to cure psoriatic disease and to help those affected.
Three years ago I knew nothing about psoriasis and honestly thought it was just a mild skin condition, like a frequently occurring rash. In fact, I wondered why people with psoriasis needed a foundation when there are so many other great needs in this world. I had no idea psoriasis is an auto immune disease meaning the body is actually attacking itself. I had no clue the real issue of psoriatic disease is the inflammation happening within the body causing many more illnesses to develop, many of which can be debilitating and even life threatening. More than 58 percent of those with psoriasis will end up with cardiovascular disease due the inflammation and more than 30 percent will end up with psoriatic arthritis leading to major disabilities (and this includes children). It is so much more than a skin disease!
Of course, it’s the horrible symptom of skin plaques that most people know psoriasis by. Now knowing so many people who have psoriasis and how this dreadful symptom impacts them deeply in both a physical and psychological way has led me to feeling incredibly passionate in my desire to help those affected by this disease.
You may not have the same passion as me to help those with psoriatic disease but please know the success of this cycle event is incredibly important to me as it will be the biggest event I do all year and probably for years to come. Your support would mean a great deal to me and will be invaluable in the success of this event raising funds to help those affected by psoriatic disease!
