Birthmark Support Group
The Group is a Registered Charity in England and Wales No. 1090952, set up by parents of children with vascular birthmarks. It provides support and information to anyone who has a birthmark, and their family and friends. The Group ensures a better understanding amongst the medical profession about types of birthmarks, possible complications and treatment, not only of the birthmark but of the whole person. It aids research into the cause of birthmarks (so far unknown) and possible cures, raises general awareness and acceptance, and eases the path through school by educating teachers and pupils.
