Dear Friends and Family,
I'm excited that our event is only one week away. So much planning behind the scenes is involved in order to make this day a success. I'm very passionate about our cause. In fact I'm more determined now being that they just announced they found a missing protein that causes Eczema. They say it's a cure. So with that said, call me optimistic, but I'm hoping they can announce a discovery for psa/pso.
I've heard a leading Scientist say they are closing in on a cure. Recent studies with small molecules is already underway and lead him to say that. We have reasons to be excited. And it's partly due to our fund raising efforts. I hope you all understand how important our efforts are here. Thank you all for your continued support.

What is it like to have psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis? Let me tell you.
When you have psoriasis, your immune system has gone haywire. It tells your body to make skin cells at five times the rate of a “normal” person. These cells have nowhere to go, so they pile up on the surface of the skin in thick patches that crack and bleed.
When you have psoriasis you’re consumed by itch. It keeps you up at night and interferes with your work day. Though it’s an autoimmune disease and not contagious, people think that they’ll catch what you’ve got. They stare at you in public places, move away from you on the bus and ask you to leave public pools and hair salons.
When you have psoriatic arthritis—and up to 30 percent of people with psoriasis eventually will—your body attacks its tendons and joints causing pain, swelling and destruction. The pain is tremendous. It greets you when you get up in the morning and follows you throughout the day. Your fingers and toes may swell. You can no longer wear your wedding ring.
For these reasons and so much more, please support my dream of a life free of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and its burdens by supporting my Cycle team.
Team NPF Cycle raises money to provide people with psoriatic disease the services they need to live well, while funding research for a cure.

Thank you so much for your support of this project that is so important to me.
