The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD President and Founder

Alyssa Christopher,

Hello! My name is Alyssa and I have a port-wine stain that covers roughly 75% of my body. It hasn’t always been easy, but I have grown to love my birthmark. I am so glad to finally have a birthmark family that we all can relate so deeply with each other. I have loved getting to know so many in the community, and I intend to promote vascular anomaly awareness to as many as I can.
