World Psoriasis Day
World Psoriasis Day, held on October 29, is dedicated to people living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. Psoriasis affects over 125 million people around the world, not just physically, but also socially, emotionally and financially. World Psoriasis Day aims to raise the profile of this debilitating disease and increase awareness of the effect it has on people’s lives.
For many, psoriasis is still a relatively unknown disease. On World Psoriasis Day, it is important to spread information about psoriasis, dispel common myths and answer questions. It is also a time to inform patients about their own condition so they can feel empowered to speak about it.
The awareness color for Psoriasis is Orange and Lavender. Personalized Cause supports World Psoriasis Day with a psoriasis orange and lavender awareness ribbon and psoriasis orange and lavender personalized awareness ribbon pin.
