Kayla Creighton

Patient advocate living with a chronic skin disease

Kayla is a 19 year old from Pictou County, Nova Scotia living with Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria (CIU), a chronic skin disease. Although the disease causes physical and emotional pain, Kayla has learned to cope with it and believes in focusing on the positive impact she can make by sharing her experience. As a patient advocate, Kayla hopes to inspire a sense of hope and community amongst others suffering from CIU and has started an online support group that she hopes to develop into a patient support group for Atlantic Canada.
