    Now that you've all had time to digest all the information we packed into the Newsletter, we would like your feedback. What have you liked so far, and what don't you enjoy as much? Is there anything you want to see that we have yet to include?

    Thank you for your help!

    We're crossing the I's and dotting the T's... or something like that. The newsletter is in the oven and it's set on 451. It should be in your inboxes by the end of the day. Hooray!

    (If you didn't get the above mentioned reference, I hope this picture helps!)

    Hey guys! I've been doing a lot of thinking lately and I wanted to pitch an interesting and fun question to you all. If you could go back and relive a year of your life, what year would it be? I'd have to say 1990, when the Reds went wire to wire and swept the Oakland A's in the World Series in 4 games. That would be great!

    What about you guys? What year would you relive, and why? I'm setting your time machine dial, but when am I setting it for?

    What do you think it is?

    Hello NVFI community! It's J, wishing you all a happy opening day weekend! Here in Cincinnati, we take this as a holiday with parades and a carnival like attitude. I'll be at the Reds game on Monday, will any of you be at your teams opening days?

    For those in Cincinnati, don't forget to email me at to let me know if you are interested in coming to the Reds game in August with NVFI. Tickets are going fast!

    And remember...

    'Cuz it's 1, 2, 3 strikes you're out at the old, ball, gaaaaaaaaaaaaaame!

    Hey community! J. here. Just wishing everyone a good Monday early. Here at NVFI, we are hard at work on April's newsletter.
    You will meet another member of your community and get the opportunity to read another original NVFI newsletter, or should I say Spot Light, article and much, much more.

    Looking forward to hearing from everyone.

    Good night, or good morning where ever you are!

    Hello! I hope this message finds everyone well. I wanted to share something that I found particularly moving. In response to my last post, a question about what you would tell people about your Vitiligo, Alicia Roufs responded with, "That it has helped make me the strong, outgoing, confident, funny, and sympathetic person I am." What an amazing sentiment!

    In response to Alicia's fantastic comment, I would like to speak from the heart for a moment. No life is perfect. We go through ups and downs and each step influences the kind of person we become. For some, a few missteps are needed, and a few potholes must be tripped over. That's just life. Each of us is a collection of past experiences that have led us to this very moment.

    For some this is physical hardship while for others it is mental anguish. But, whatever you past experiences, they have only truly been a loss if you do not learn from them.

    We all make mistakes, but it's what we do afterwards that shows our true colors.

    Get up, dust yourself off, and smile! It's a brand new day!

    Morning community! I have a very important question for you all. If you had to tell someone just ONE thing about your Vitiligo, what would it be?

    Thanks! Responses can be sent to or posted as a response here.

    Hey guys and girls! How's everyone doing today? We've got a question. What was your favorite part of the newsletter? We are working hard on making Issue 2 a great success, and we want to hear from you! Is there a section you loved, or, just as importantly, is there a section you didn't like? Let us know!

    Thanks and have a spectacular day!

    I would like to break some awesome news to the members of our Cincinnati Community! On August 25 at 1:10 PM, the Cincinnati Reds will be taking on the Milwaukee Brewers and WE will be in the left field stands! That's right! On Sunday, August 25th, the Cincinnati Community will be taking a break and enjoying an afternoon at the ballpark! More details will come but what you need to know right now is that NVFI is working with the Reds to welcome the members of our community to the park. Mark your calendars and, if you are interested, please be sure to comment on this post or email J. at!
