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

VBF no longer maintains an active discussion forum. You may post questions and/or concerns on our VBF Facebook page. We are also providing a list of Facebook pages that may be appropriate for the vascular birthmark type that you or a loved one has been diagnosed with. There are many vascular birthmark groups on Facebook and other social media outlets. The following are some examples but do not represent an exhaustive list. You can google the name of the various vascular birthmarks/anomalies types and find many closed and open groups which encourage discussion. VBF also randomly monitors some groups to provide information to affected individuals and families.
