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

 My Birthmark. My Story.

The VBF International Month of Awareness for Vascular Birthmarks, Anomalies and Syndromes is in May and the VBF Day of Awareness is on May 15, marked by US Congressional Resolution. Join our virtual movement as people around the world promote acceptance of birthmarks and raise funds to help bring those who need treatment together with the experts who can help them. Together, we continue the movement.

VBF has networked over 125,000 patients into treatment and answered over 250,000 family inquiries in the last quarter century. As a non-profit, we rely on your contributions to offer international education programs, conferences, free laser treatments, free consultations, and many other initiatives that help ensure every birthmark patient has an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Your partnership in raising awareness for our community and funds for VBF changes lives.

Here's how you can join the movement!
