Todd works tirelessly to increase awareness of psoriatic disease and help others affected by it. He runs a psoriasis support page on Facebook "Overcoming Psoriasis." He dedicates his time to reaching out to others and provides information, support and experience in dealing with all the issues of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. His smile can lighten anyone’s day and his positive attitude is truly inspirational.
Todd also assists others with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis through his participation in the Psoriasis One to One program. He has become a fixture of NPF’s New York Community Division and all associated events, including fundraisers and educational seminars.
Todd has taken the initiative to help in any way he can to spread the word about NPF’s resources. Todd’s passion and enthusiasm is contagious and he lifts the spirits of everyone he comes into contact with. Todd is a born leader who volunteers out of a deep passion for helping others and alleviating suffering.
Jaime Moy is a compassionate, engaged and innovative volunteer. Despite the fact that Jaime does not live in an area served by a Community Division, she has helmed a number of independent fundraisers, which demonstrates her commitment to creating imaginative ways to raise money for the Foundation and psoriasis research.
This last year she took on the role of Chair of the Youth Services Committee, where she has helped develop the National Volunteer Conference Youth Track and the overhaul of the youth area of psoriasis.org. Jaime serves on the Outreach Committee and is an active Community Ambassador. She has cultivated relationships with media outlets, local legislators, and health care providers in her community. She is extremely articulate and sensitive to the needs of others, which makes her a very valuable local representative for NPF.
Jaime has a lot of great ideas and is constantly thinking about ways that we can deepen community connections and spread awareness about psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Jaime works independently in many respects, and her tireless efforts bring a lot of value to National Psoriasis Foundation
Tami has a gift of motivating others with her positive and caring attitude. Tami was first introduced to NPF through the Food and Drug Administration meeting on psoriasis in March 2016. Since then, she has been involved in furthering the NPF mission in unique and creative ways. She recently put on a DIY Rock and Roll themed fundraising event that raised $3,700 for psoriasis research.
Tami has tried and failed every treatment available for her psoriasis, even to the point of losing all of her hair, but continues to maintain an attitude of hope and selflessness. Tami has spoken to her legislators in Washington, D.C., trained to be a Community Ambassador, and has taken on the role of a Psoriasis One to One volunteer. All of the participants in the One to One program who are matched with Tami have nothing but great things to say about her. She is prompt in her communication and always willing to lend a hand. Tami is a volunteer who can be counted on.
