June is vitiligo awareness month and June 25th is Vitiligo awareness day. The day was created to help spread awareness and hopefully increase research of vitiligo.
Vitiligo is a skin condition where the skin looses its pigment in places. It does not hurt and it is not contagious. Less than 1% of the population has this condition and therefore it isn’t very well-known or researched. As such, I wanted to try and help spread some awareness. Some think it is an autoimmune condition.
Some people you make recognize with vitiligo include:
- Michael Jackson
- Steve Martin
- Holly Marie Combs
- Jon Hamm
- Rasheed Wallace
This June also marks the year anniversary of vitiligo touching our lives. If you have any questions, please ask me. Additionally, here are some links for more information:
