Come join our next Vitiligo Support Group Meeting. At the start of every meeting, there's a 15 minute meet and greet. Afterward, we begin to discuss repigmentation, depigmentation and quality of life issues related to Vitiligo. We want everyone in attendance to be comfortable so you don't have to participate. If you'd like to sit and listen, it's quite fine too. Knowing others with the condition can really makes a difference. The solidarity and bond a group of people share can be quite comforting. Come and see what we're all about.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP soon with your contact info because spaces are limited. Contact Shazaad at Vitiligocamo83@gmail.com
