The "Itch for a Cure" is a Hike-a-Thon and online fundraising event to raise money for a cookbook and research to aid millions of psoriasis suffers.

Psoriasis is the most common autoimmune disease in the U.S., affecting roughly 7.5 million Americans. Psoriasis appears on the skin when the immune system sends out false signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis can occur at any age and on any part of the body, and is associated with other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and depression.

Psoriasis can dramatically and negatively impacts their quality of life. There is currently no cure for psoriasis; more research is needed.

As suffers of psoriasis ourselves, we have learned how to manage our psoriasis through diet. The purpose of this fundraiser is to create a cookbook with helpful recipes and diet tips. We would like to help people lead a life where they no longer have to suffer and offer hope. Our goal is to raise $500; any amount is greatly appreciated.

The Hike-a-thon (see website below) will be a great time and we hope everyone can come out and support those needlessly suffering from psoriasis. Any support would mean the world to us! Help us fight for the cause!
