Driven by the passion and aspiration to help those affected by Vitiligo, The Beautifully Unblemished Vitiligo Support Group Inc. (BUVSG) was founded in 2018 striving to bring empowerment and outreach to those with Vitiligo in the sunshine state.

Serving as Florida’s sole Vitiligo support group, BUVSG’s mission is to increase public awareness of Vitiligo as well as offer support services to patients and their families through education, healthcare, and resources. Since the foundation of BUVSG Inc. the organization has continued to expand, strengthening bonds within BUVSG and our communities as we work together to eradicate the social stigma surrounding Vitiligo.  

Through a combined effort and unrelenting perseverance, we aim to improve the quality of life for all those affected by Vitiligo. Our ultimate desires are to see changes in our communities in areas such as research funding, support group funding, and correct insurance labeling of vitiligo as a disease and not a cosmetic condition.

BUVSG offers patient support through the following ways:

In person support group meetings throughout Central and South Florida

providing information concerning vitiligo to our group members through our website, social media platforms, and newsletters

 promotion of clinical trials, patient surveys, treatment options, and research information.

classroom education for Elementary/Middle/High school aged students living with vitiligo

youth retreats focused on mental health, acceptance, and self confidence

 mental health counseling and mindfulness training
