D’Lyric Inspired is excited to join forces with Vitiligo Bond Inc., (VBI), which was founded in November 2010 by Natasha Pierre-McCarthy, who is also a Vitiligan (a person with Vitiligo).
VBI is a registered nonprofit 501c(3) organization based out of Atlanta, GA. that aims to provide support for those living with Vitiligo. Currently, Vitiligo Bond Inc. is in collaboration with Congress to make Vitiligo an official observance day in the United States.
VBI has grown into a worldwide support group, through its Facebook and social media presence. Together, D’Lyric Inspired and VBI plan to increase awareness about Vitiligo using an approach that they hope will generate a positive outreach of interest.
Perry Whaley, also a Vitiligan and spokesperson for VBI, will kick-off the 30-City “Be The True You” tour here in Houston. Perry will be one of the guest speakers on the panel. Speakers will also include Dr. Milton Moore, Board Certified Dermatologist and Pharmacist, and the developer of Moore Unique Skin Care, Dr. Alanna F. Bree, Board Certified Pediatric Dermatologist and Founder of A Children’s House for the Soul, Helon Hammond, Parent Advocate of Children with Vitiligo, and Yolanda Roberts, Founder of Healing Hearts Network an organization whose motto is ‘You are not alone’ and who provides resources to the Houston community.
The event will be hosted by Radio Personality, Amber Shaw (@itsmeambershaw) of KYND Radio 1520 AM “Unplugged Praise”. Entertainment will include dance performance, spoken word, a fashion statement (not your typical fashion show), and more. Candie’s Fine Catering will serve delectable appetizers.
