The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

My name is Megan, and I have 2 Port Wine Stains on my left hand. It kind of looks like someone put a reddish-purple lipstick on and rubbed it all over the back of my hand. Over the years, I’ve had people ask me questions, or be freaked out by my birthmarks.

My goal is to normalize vascular birthmarks and spread awareness about these special types of birthmarks. As a teen, I feel that using VBF and my social media platforms is an awesome way to educate my peers about vascular birthmarks.
