Hi there,
I am from MB. My daughter has a hemangioma on her forehead. I have seen a dermatologist and plastic surgeon in Wpg. I have also contacted the Peds Vascular Clinic in Childrens Hospital in Calgary. All have suggested the wait and see approach. We would look to surgery before she's school age. She is now 17 months old! I'm not sure what's covered through Great west life/blue cross etc....but if you dig anything up, please post.
Good luck to you! I can honestly say that I was paniked about the H for the first year of her life, now I've relaxed. It stopped growing at 9 months...starting to grey a little........I think..
