Daphna Smolka

Patient Educator & Caretaker

Life is filled with great joys and often sadness. Daphna met her future husband, Felix, at the young age of six years old. Years later, after graduating from college, they met again. The attraction was instant, and for the seventeen years they were married, they adored each other. Throughout their marriage, Daphna stood by Felix through many medical trials and tribulations until he passed away due to metastasized melanoma. Daphna honors his legacy by trying to live life to the fullest no matter what happens. Today, Daphna works as a patient educator for the International Pemphigus Pemphigoid Foundation, speaking with dental and medical students and raising awareness about treatment for this rare disease.
