Shining A Light On Veterans Living With Vitiligo

A Heartfelt Thank You to Veterans who Protect and Serve our Country!

How does stress and anxiety affect you?

Meet Jacqueline who is a veteran living with Vitiligo. Hear how Vitiligo has presented as a result of stress, anxiety, and trauma.   This gives an insight into how the body can choose to handle stress and anxiety in the face of danger.

What if that switch that handles stress and anxiety is not turned off.

Hear the results when the body is overburdened and suffers from burnout.

Some of us live our daily lives in a stressful environment.  As a result, stress silently attacks us on all levels, and we never pay attention until our bodies present with the results of stress such as Vitiligo and other life-threatening disorders.



Natasha Pierre McCarthy is the proud founder of Vitiligo Bond Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support and encouragement to individuals with vitiligo. From a vision through teaching as a Christian business professor, Vitiligo Bond was created. We educate through creative forms to patients and the public. Through vitiligo 101 sessions at Emory University with Dr. Holla, special community events, social media, partner support groups, public figures and state leaders we are able to bond and have available support for anyone suffering with vitiligo. Vitiligo Bond has created a path for vitiligo awareness and positive expression. We now have the following states through Governor Proclamations that recognize vitiligo awareness: {Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, & West Virginia}. In addition, Vitiligo Bond has been recognized by Congressman Hank Johnson. Congressman Johnson was also instrumental in our advocacy efforts to help get special recognition during the month of June from our President Obama to recognize and stand together with people who suffer with vitiligo. I believe that God created us for a purpose and everyone deserves the right to have fullness and a quality life. We all have the ability to shine. Vitiligo Bond Inc. is constantly working to raise awareness of the mysterious illness and use their platform in order to fund research that will hopefully lead to the discovery of the cause and a cure for vitiligo.
