VITFriends VITILIGO Support Group will host the Third Annual VITILIGO Conference in Worcester, MA. Vitiligo is a mental and emotional debilitating SKIN disease that is stated to be one of many autoimmune diseases. Vitiligo affects over 50million people globally and around 4million just in the USA. Vitiligo affects all race, gender, religion, age, nationality and region of the earth. In this era of bullying, our young children living with Vitiligo not ONLY have to deal with their changing skin and all that come with that, but NOW the addition of having to be bullied for something they cannot control. Within a matter of three month VITFriends have logged a total of 86 parents with young children not just from the USA but from several other countries calling us for assistance and with questions about vitiligo. June 22-24, 2018 will be our 3rd Annual Vitiligo Conference in Massachusetts and we would love to support many of these families to be a part of this conference and World VITILIGO Celebration, by either helping with hotel cost or registration fees. Our special guest, child model with Vitiligo who is now featured in the latest GAP commercial, April Star will speak to the children. A child Psychologist, who herself has vitiligo will speak to both parent and children and this will be a critical piece addressing coping techniques. Supporting these families is very important to us and critical for both children and parents because it will offer coping and managing skills, access to world renowned dermatologist and a chance to engage with others who can truly understand what they go through. Thank you for supporting our CAUSE - Vitiligo!
