The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD President and Founder

Charles Alderson, United States (US), Arkansas

I grew up in the late 70’s and all 80’s with no treatment options and most doctors not knowing what a vascular birthmark or Sturge-Weber Syndrome was, or how to treat it. I was able to have some laser treatments in the early 90’s to help with the skin lumping and swelling. I had about 10 treatments over a 5 year span. My Sturge-Weber Syndrome also has caused glaucoma in right eye and I suffer from seizures. I’m married now with a son and Sturge-Weber Syndrome was not hereditary. Still going strong!
