World Vitiligo Day Proclamations
To celebrate the World Vitiligo Day in Detroit, Michigan Governor Mr. Rick Snyder and Mayor Mr. Dave Bing sent over official proclamations, with acknowledgment of the dedication to vitiligo care of the Henry Ford Hospital’s dermatology department, the Southeast Michigan Vitiligo Support Group and Vitiligo Research Foundation.
We are proud of the leadership demonstrated by Henry Ford Hospital, Governor and city leaders to advance progress in the area of the neglected disease that affects nearly a hundred million people worldwide.
VR Foundation looks forward to working with the City of Detroit and Henry Ford Health System in the years to come and hope that it will bring people touched by vitiligo the services they need to manage this devastating disease.
We cannot thank everyone enough for their time and efforts in putting all of this together. What an amazing week this has been – right here in Detroit, the symbol of American renewal and determination!
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
