Phil Mickelson Launches Campaign to Raise Awareness for Psoriatic Arthritis
Phil Mickelson Champions New Cause Off the Links
Pain is not just for athletes. When you have Psoriatic Arthritis, the pain can strike from anywhere, and to anyone. Those with the autoimmune disease have a new spokesperson leading the charge in educating the public on the disorder.
Phil Mickelson understands first hand what it feels like to be struck down by Psoriatic Arthritis. He first felt the pain before the opening rounds of the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. When they returned, he knew he needed to get some help.
This is a classic case of a patient seeking out help early enough for them to be helped. Yet, some out there may go undiagnosed for far too long. Mickelson did not want to sit idle with that as a possibility. That is why he is trumpeting this new cause to educate people on Psoriatic Arthritis.
Lefty says that he is still missing about 20 percent of his strength and club speed, but he is ever grateful that he went for help when he did. He may not be at his full strength when the Masters rolls around, but he understands it could have been far worse.
That is really all he hopes to convey. Psoriatic Arthritis is a serious issue and the nation must be aware of its symptoms. He is partnering with Amgen and Pfizer to launch On Course With Phil. It is a website where information on the disease is offered.
In a day and age where athletes are more aloof than not, it is nice to see one do something for others.
