Yvonne Chan is a young person living with psoriasis in Singapore. Like other patients who suffer from this oft-misunderstood skin condition, she frequently encounters discrimination in public places in the form of prolonged stares, unkind remarks or gestures. "Psoriasis isn't contagious, but awareness is." By telling her story, Yvonne hopes to spread awareness and end the stigma associated with psoriasis.
