Global Delegates

When facing a rare disease with limited knowledge in the medical field, we begin performing our own research. And it can be stressful searching for those knowledgeable doctors and services in your location. Our delegates are those who have already made this journey, and they are available to share their experiences. Click the image to learn who our delegates are, and how they can assist you on your rare disease journey.


Looking for information to guide you through this adventure? Our “Resources” tab holds a wealth of information, from understanding a vascular malformation diagnosis to a nursing diagnosis. Within the Let Us Help category you will find: our delegates listed by state or country, learn where VAC teams are located, download an informational brochure, and the answers to numerous questions. The More Resources category contains links to other helpful topics. Click the Resources tab in the main menu at the top of this page.

We will be hosted at The Embassy Suites O’Hare Rosemont. 

There will be multiple medical disciplines represented, including our elite Medical Advisory Team.

Genetic Research

The actual state of the research is that we are inviting participation from those with classic CMTC. The study involves providing a blood or saliva sample as well as a 3 mm diameter round skin biopsy. We plan to sequence both and look for differences. ~Dr. Millan Patel

Dr. Patel’s research study is currently on hold. We will provide status updates as we receive them.
