Psoriasis. It hurts.

It hurts on the outside and it hurts on the inside.

Psoriasis is a serious, lifelong disease of the immune system that appears on the skin causing it to itch, crack, flake and bleed. People with psoriasis are at risk of having other serious health issues such as heart disease, diabetes and depression.

As many as 7.5 million Americans have psoriasis. These people are our mothers, fathers, sons and daughters. They're our sisters and brothers, our husbands and wives. They are us.

You can help stop the hurt. You can help stop psoriasis.

Register now to participate in the National Psoriasis Victor Henschel BioBank. The BioBank will house the world's largest collection of DNA samples for psoriasis study. These samples come from people across the U.S.—people who either have psoriasis or love someone who does—to be used by scientists around the world to find a cure for this devastating disease.

Won't you join us? It takes less than five minutes to register to participate. Once you're accepted into the BioBank, we will contact you to guide you through the process of submitting your DNA sample.

Do it for yourself. Do it for someone you love. Register with the National Psoriasis BioBank and let's stop psoriasis!
