Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

Day of Awareness

Changing Lives – One Mark at a Time

May 15th is the official International Day of Awareness of Vascular Birthmarks. It began in 2004 with a Congressional resolution and continues today to be our largest effort to build community among people affected by vascular birthmarks.

Every birthmark tells a story. If you, your child, family member, or a friend has been affected by a vascular birthmark, let others know how it impacted your life. Was VBF able to help you receive treatment and support?

All around the country, people just like you will be promoting acceptance of birthmarks and raising funds to bring people who need treatment together with the experts who can help them.

Remember, the day you do your event is a Day of Awareness for VBF, so there’s always time to plan your Day of Awareness event this year.


We are making a difference!
