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

Join the Awareness Movement

Our corporate and individual partners make possible our public mission. We invite you to use this tool-kit to multiply our reach for the VBF Month of Awareness for Vascular Birthmarks Anomalies and Syndromes this May.

The VBF Day of Awareness and VBF Giving Day are on May 15.  Please put May, and especially May 15th, on your calendar and mobilize your community to raise awareness.

Together, we continue the movement until every child and adult with a vascular birthmark world-wide has an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan that saves lives.

#1: SHARE THE MOVEMENT

VBF’s International Day of Awareness for Vascular Birthmarks, Anomalies and Syndromes is on May 15 and our Month of Awareness for Vascular Birthmarks is in May, marked by Congressional Resolution. Dr. Linda launched the Day of Awareness campaign as a way to raise awareness for vascular birthmarks and promote acceptance for our community. It is now a global movement that reached over 30,000 last year. Your participation makes a difference for our community now more than ever.

#2: JOIN #PutOnYourBirthmark

On May 15, #PutOnYourBirthmark by sharing a photo of yourself or a loved one with a heart to raise awareness for vascular birthmarks for the VBF International Day of Awareness for Vascular Birthmarks, Anomalies and Syndromes.  You can also share our VBF Awareness content to educate, raise awareness, and advocate for our community.
