From Top Model to Role Model-LOUD & CLEAR With CariDee Canadian Tour

CariDee English reaches out to the nearly 1 million Canadian psoriasis sufferers

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – March 12, 2008) – Psoriasis is a serious skin disease that affects 1 in 30 Canadians. America’s Next Top Model Cycle 7 winner CariDee English suffers from the illness. At its worst, the red, inflamed scaly patches of skin (plaques) associated with psoriasis covered nearly 70% of her body, including her face. CariDee’s dream of becoming a model was almost shattered. But she persevered and with the help of a dermatologist, found a treatment that worked for her. CariDee is now sharing her inspiring story from coast to coast on the LOUD & CLEAR with CariDee Canadian Tour.

“When I was younger, I felt cursed with psoriasis. It was very hard growing up as a teenager, and later when I started my modeling career. But I’ve managed to take control of the disease and fulfill my dreams thanks to a new biologic treatment. Who would have thought the girl who grew up dreading looking in the mirror would one day make a living from her appearance?”

With determination and persistence, English worked to find the right therapy. “I was frustrated and depressed, and knew I had to find a treatment that worked.” CariDee advises Canadian psoriasis sufferers to talk to their dermatologist about new treatment options: take control of the disease and don’t let it control you. “You can take control of your life, overcome psoriasis and live out your dreams.”

The LOUD & CLEAR with CariDee Canadian Tour is presented by the Psoriasis Education Program (PEP), a national public awareness program that provides accurate, comprehensive and non-commercial information on psoriasis to patients, families, health care professionals and the general public.
