World Vitiligo Day - June 25

There are a lot of people who for some reason do not believe we should stand up for our rights and demand a cure for Vitiligo a neglected and underestimated condition. They say Vitiligo is not life threatening and not contagious when most persons living with Vitiligo are emotionally and psychologically dead. That we must embrace a life of hiding from sunlight and from the society. We must be faced with stigma, segregation and rejection the society refuse to agree exist.
