The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

Growing up in a small town, I didn’t see people like me. In fact I hadn’t met anyone like me in person or online until I found ‘Birthmark Instagram’! I started sharing my story on Instagram to help others with their own confidence and so they would know they aren’t alone in their struggles. I shared enough that a media company reached out and wanted to share my story! Since the videos were published, they have reached millions of people across the globe bringing awareness to vascular birthmarks. It took me a long time to embrace what makes me different and I’m so happy I have.
