ABOUT #PutOnYourBirthmark

VBF’s International Day of Awareness is on May 15 and our Month of Awareness for Vascular Birthmarks is in May, marked by Congressional Resolution. Dr. Linda launched the #PutOnYourBirthmark campaign as a way to raise awareness for vascular birthmarks and acceptance for our community, and it has become a global movement extending all year long.
