Meet our 2023 Take ACTION Honored Hero, Dayna!

Hello everyone! My name is Dayna, and I am from San Diego, CA. When I was diagnosed with moderate to severe psoriasis last year, I was shocked, but I could never have imagined how much this condition would change my quality of life. Within three months after the appearance of my first few spots, flaky, bleeding, plaques took over my whole body. I felt lost – topical after topical, nothing helped. New spots would appear every day, and I no longer felt beautiful in my own skin.

However, with the help of my dermatologist, we were able to find a biologic treatment that worked for me, and I am extremely grateful to share that I have attained 100% skin clearance since then.

The psoriatic disease community, including over 8 million individuals in the United States, is built upon struggle, but strengthened by each individual’s resilience and story. With the National Psoriasis Foundation, I aim to help increase the availability and accessibility of resources supporting those with psoriatic disease, as well as foster connections between individuals of the psoriatic disease community. We are not alone in our experiences, and we deserve to feel seen. We deserve to feel like our concerns and struggles are being heard as we push for a cure for psoriatic disease.

With this, I am honored to be the National Psoriasis Foundation’s Honored Hero at San Diego’s Take Action Event on Saturday, September 30 at Riverwalk Golf Course. I look forward to joining you and other members and supporters of the psoriatic disease community, as we celebrate raising funds towards a cure for psoriasis. Sign up your team today, and I invite YOU to join me in taking action for psoriatic disease.
