Message from our Leader:
Hello, I'm Denise Blanks, AS, LPN, 60 yrs young, wife (39 yrs), mother of 3 grown children & grandmother to 4. I was diagnosed with Vitiligo 7+ yrs. ago. I remember on my last visit to my dermatologist, I asked, " is there a support group that I could get involved with?" The answer was that they weren't aware of anything local support groups but referred me to websites. THERE'S a NEED for a physical meeting, a you're not- alone meeting, a share-your-frustrations meeting, a "now, get-back-out-there and live" your life meeting/support group!
After much prayer, thought & encouragement from family & friends, I had our first meeting on December 13! I invite you to share this information with your family & friends with vitiligo here in Indiana and your patients! I want to especially reach out to the youth & their parents, children can be cruel & tease children with vitiligo because they look different. They are not alone and there is strength in numbers.
My MAIN goal is to encourage, empower and educate as well as support those dealing with vitiligo. And dare to reach out to the public to educate them and answer questions as well.
I am so excited to have become an Affiliate to the nationally know Vitfriends organization!
