Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

Day of Awareness

Changing Lives - One Mark at a Time


We can transform the International Month and Day of Awareness for Vascular Birthmarks in May & on May 15 into a global movement extending all year long.

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. Join the movement as people across the country and around the globe promote acceptance of birthmarks and raise funds to bring those who need treatment together with the experts who can help them.

Ready to help? Join our 25thanniversary challenge to host 25 Awareness Events throughout the world this year as we count down to our 25th Anniversary in 2019.

Each month through May, we will share different ways you can join the movement and help spread awareness. You can help us meet our goal of 25 awareness events to count down to our 25th anniversary in 2019.
