Ryan’s Vitiligo Story

When i was about 15 I started getting spots on my left hand. It started on my thumb and index finger. Although my condition is not as noticeable as others, it still affects my daily life. I always am staring at it and always wondering if someone can tell I have the condition. I’m 17 now and it has not spread much, but it’s considerably larger than it used to be.

Living in Missouri there’s not much new medicine, so where I live not much is known about vitiligo. I’ve been wanting to try the UVB or UV treatment, but I’m not for sure where to go! I’m hoping that my condition stays the same, or goes away. And always remember if you do have vitiligo that there is hope. Do NOT give up the hope that you can be cured.. Ryan
