David Allen Tostrud

Patient Leader

I'm a dad to 2 wonderful kids, a piano teacher, in-school suspension supervisor at a middle school, and a fitness coach. I've also been living with psoriatic arthritis for almost 10 years, and while it might be a rough diagnosis to deal with, it doesn't define who I am. And in living and dealing daily with PsA, I've tried very hard to be a positive influence for others living with debilitating diseases. I use social media, especially Facebook and Instagram, to motivate and inspire others into believing the mindset that there is ALWAYS a way to work around an illness or disease. It begins with believing that it CAN be done, as long as you NEVER give up.
