One in five children is impacted by a skin condition or birthmark, and that impact is more than skin deep. Research has demonstrated that there are social, emotional, and developmental challenges that take place when a child is learning to cope and grow with visibly different skin. We want to be a safe place for families to go when facing these challenges so that they can get more than medicine.
In our community, we have children, teenagers, and adults impacted by skin conditions and birthmarks including, but not limited to:
- Eczema/Atopic Dermatitis
- Alopecia Areata
- Linear Scleroderma
- Ectodermal Dysplasia
- Epidermolysis Bullosa
We are here to provide social, emotional, and spiritual support to any family who has a child or teenager impacted by a skin condition or birthmark.
