About Psoriasis Cure Now
Psoriasis Cure Now was founded in 2005 with one goal: to find a cure for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
Headquartered in the Washington, D.C. area, we advocate for the needs of psoriasis patients: more funding for scientific research and more access to safe, effective treatments.
Volunteers throughout the United States propel Psoriasis Cure Now, a nonprofit charitable organization. Psoriasis Cure Now is the only national psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis nonprofit that accepts no funding from pharmaceutical companies or the government. Our only stakeholders are psoriasis patients. Among our recent projects, we:
* Bring the Psoriasis Walk to locations around the country, focusing attention on psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. The Psoriasis Walk, in 10 cities in 2010, provides a way for patients and loved ones to meet others coping with the disease and learn about the latest treatments.
* Run Psoriasis.Name, the social network where people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis connect with others, exchange treatment info, make friends and support each other.
* Testify on Capitol Hill, meet with legislative staff, and encourage media reports to highlight the need for more funding for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and broader access to treatments.
* Produce the annual Psoriasis Patient Calendar, showing the devastating impact psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis can have on people. The calendar is distributed to every member of Congress, dermatologists and other medical professionals, hundreds of news reporters, and psoriasis patients nationwide.
* Publish a free, quarterly Psoriasis Treatment Tips e-newsletter with the latest on new treatment options.
* And much, much more….
Please help! Make a tax-deductible donation, sign up for a Psoriasis Walk, write your lawmakers about psoriasis, or offer to volunteer from your home.
