My name is Isabella and I have two hemangiomas: one on my shoulder and one on my lower cheek. I was told by a plastic surgeon that they would disappear by the time I turned 18, but they never did. Throughout my education, I have received comments questioning what happened to me. After five years of actively trying to cover them up, I have fully embraced the fact that I am different. I had never seen someone with a birthmark like mine, and I want to help others who feel the same way!
