My Name is Jair Lopez. I am diagnosed with vitiligo. I am a dentist. My work involves talking and teaching oral health to children here in Chiapas, Mexico. I have met people in Mexico who think that vitiligo is a punishment. When I share my journey with vitiligo and teach others about this autoimmune disease it makes me feel great! Many communities here in Mexico, including my state of Chiapas have lots of ignorance about health. I decided to teach oral health in my community. There are so many that suffer discrimination simply because others don't know about these diseases. Many in Mexico think these diseases are punishments from God! I hope my story and my photos will help inspire others to take a stand in help fighting the stigma that is often attached with vitiligo.
