The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD President and Founder

VBF Global Ambassador LogoThe Awareness committee is designed to help educate, spread VBF resources as well as expand the VBF Global Ambassador program by connecting Ambassadors with areas of interest in the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation network. Did you know the VBF International Month of Awareness for Vascular Birthmarks, Anomalies, and Related Syndromes is recognized the entire month of May? The VBF also celebrates the Day of Awareness on May 15th, which is marked by U.S. Congressional Resolution! During this day families join in together to raise awareness and understanding of vascular birthmarks by sharing their stories and pictures through many social media outlets. Our support groups and committees play a critical role in connecting our community with others who have shared experiences and who may be seeking information and education. Join our movement as our global community helps to promote acceptance of VBARS!

Did you know one in every ten babies are born with a vascular birthmark, anomaly, or related syndrome? Our awareness initiatives help us to reach those affected in many different ways.
