Smile Hello, I'm Mindie, from Melbourne, Australia

Hello everyone,
My name's Mindie. I'm 22 years old, I have hemangioma on the right hand side of my face, from my nose to my lips. I've had a few operations so far.
I'm a very happy and positive person, the birthmark doesn't bother me much. I have to say, though, it took me a while for me to accept myself as who I am.
I have never met anyone with a birthmark. I saw one person with a birthmark on the train, and one at my local shopping centre but I've never spoken to one.
So if you live in Melbourne, Australia, I'd love to meet you. Just drop me an email.

Hope to talk to you soon,

Hi Mindie,

Just wanted to say hi. It is a very interesting experence meeting other people with birthmarks. There is a Australia group on this site. I am sure there are a couple of people you could meet up with there.

I am so glad you a positive about your birthmark. It makes life work better for you doesn't it?

Talk to you later.

Hi, Mindie
I'm Ann from Australia, I dont live in Melbourne but only live about 3 hours from there, I have my laser treatment in Melbourne every 3 months. My birthmarks are on my legs and I've been having treatment for about 12 years. If you have any questions about where I have laser or anything just email me at fwandadsilk@bigpond.com.au.
