Smile Finally!


This is my first post however I have been a member of the site for a little while. My daughter is almost a year old with 5 hemangiomas. She had 3 visible at birth and 2 more appeared when she was a few weeks old.

My husband and I have been to so many doctors in our city and we FINALLY found the right clinic! We have been given the "wait and see" approach for the last year however we were recently referred to the Vascular Birthmark Clinic in Calgary, Canada.

We saw Dr. Walker and she put my daughter on Propranolol. Today was her third day on the medication and we noticed that her hemangioma on her scalp is almost flat.

For anyone in the Alberta area I would definitely recommend this clinic. I am just disappointed that we were not able to go there sooner.

I have a few pictures but I need to figure out how to resize them first.
