Lauren - Saving Face

When Lauren was born with a large red mark on her face, her mom, Susan, didn’t think much of it — until it changed.

“We watched it for a few weeks, hoping it would fade,” Susan said. “Instead, it got thicker, and the color changed from red to purple.”

Susan became more concerned when Lauren’s pediatrician — during a routine check-up — mentioned referring her case to a dermatologist. And when they got home from the visit, there was a message from the Dermatology Division at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego notifying them of Lauren’s upcoming appointment. The speed of the call added to Susan’s fear — that what she initially thought was a bruise or run-of-the-mill birthmark was something far more troubling. Soon, they would be making countless trips to Rady Children’s.  MORE
