Every birthmark tells a story and this is ours
On March 4, 2015, we welcomed our beautiful daughter into the world. She arrived absolutely perfect – 10 fingers, 10 toes and a special birthmark on her cheek and chin!
Months later we found out that her birthmark was something called a port wine stain (PWS) – a kind of vascular birthmark. We immediately started our search for answers and came across the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation (VBF). The VBF has not only provided us with answers but also with a sense of community and support system unlike any other.
Our sweet 3-year old currently receives laser treatments for her PWS, which cause her to have temporary purple polka dots on her face. Our mission is to raise awareness and encourage acceptance for all those out there who are also sporting their very own “purple polka dots”!
All of the funds raised by the Purple Polka Dot Race go directly to the VBF. We know it will be put to good use! We don’t know how else to say it and it sounds so simple, but THANK YOU VBF! We don’t know where would be without you!
Thank you all for your continued love, support and understanding! See you in August!
Much love – John, Jody & Meghana Lee
