Natasha Pierre is one of those people who make a difference. I received a call today from her and was intrigued by the commitment she has made to others who suffer from Vitiligo. She is the founder of Vitiligo Bond Inc. (www.vitiligobond.org) based in Atlanta.
VBI’s mission is to:
- Make vitiligo (which a non contagious skin disorder which often times appears as a burn) a recognized word through awareness.
- Empower VBI members to benefit from the strength of a larger community.
- Support VBI members’ growth and show them how to, “Let their light shine”!
She focuses her energy at Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/VITILIGOBONDINC and of course the VBI website.
Vitiligo as many of you know has few if any uncomfortable, physical manifestations other than perhaps an itch or two for some people. It does, sometimes create very challenging social and psychological problems for those that have the disease and their families. It’s one of those diseases that you can’t catch from others. Some of us are predisposed to Vitiligo and all it takes sometimes a cut or a physical scrape and for many a major event such as a death in family or other serious psychological event.
We here at Amjo (www.HomePhotoTherapy.com) will be offering a discount on UVB Narrow Band products sold to friends and supporters of VBI. We are working on updating our support page and we will be creating a special link from the VBI website!
