About I Have Vitiligo

I Have Vitiligo was created to provide a platform where people with vitiligo (and their loved ones) can connect with one another. It is an online support system to inspire people with vitiligo to live happy lives through stories, guides and personal development tips.

“My hope is that… I can encourage people with vitiligo to live life fully. I want people to shed the shame associated with vitiligo. I also want to be encouraged by people that have vitiligo. I want to hear how people are dealing with it both mentally and medically. I think we can have fun talking about vitiligo.” – Keith
