If you or someone you know suffers from psoriasis, then you’ve likely heard it referred to as the “heartbreak of psoriasis.”
Psoriasis is an auto-immune inflammatory skin disease that causes itchy red, often thickened skin, with silvery colored scales or patches.
Because it’s chronic and unsightly, psoriasis sufferers often experience depression and resist engaging in social activities. Psoriasis also increases the risk of heart disease. Hence, “the heartbreak of psoriasis.”
On Saturday, October 13, 2012, San Diego will hold its 6th Annual Walk to Cure Psoriasis. By registering, you will join nearly 10,000 walkers, volunteers, and sponsors nationwide committed to help find a cure for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis by funding groundbreaking research.
