2. An explanation of vascular malformations and treatment options.

3. Interviews with many families who have children with vascular birthmarks such as hemangiomas and vascular malformations.

4. A detailed chapter on how to appeal an insurance denial for treatment of a vascular birthmark.

6. A list of support groups throughout the country which deal with vascular birthmarks and birth defects.

7. Information on how to obtain free airfare for to and from medical treatment for a vascular birthmark.

8. And much, much more.

This book is a must for families, physicians and all health care providers and insurers who deal with children and adults with vascular birthmarks.
