Thank you for visiting the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

We are an international charitable organization that networks those affected by a vascular birthmark, anomaly, tumor or syndrome to the appropriate medical professionals for evaluation and treatment. VBF also educates physicians and affected families regarding treatment options, supports relevant research, mobilizes medical missions, and empowers those living with vascular birthmarks.

Here you will find information and resources for patients and families affected by hemangiomas, port-wine stain birthmarks, arteriovenous malformations, capillary malformations, lymphatic malformations, Sturge-Weber Syndrome, Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome (KTS), and any other type of vascular birthmark or syndrome.
