Welcome to Pen Pal Patch:

Creating a Wonderful Community for Children with VITILIGO to Connect and Communicate!

Pen Pal Patch is a safe haven for children with VITILIGO aged 4 to 12. Founded in 2017 by April Sawyer of Massachusetts, it came to life as a result of her daughter Aliya's VITILIGO diagnosis at the age of six. April's vision for Pen Pal Patch is to foster a sense of camaraderie among children with VITILIGO. This platform serves as a positive support system for Aliya and all other children confronting similar issues. Pen Pal Patch is a space where they can be themselves and develop lifelong friendships.
