Kandice Benford Shares What Living With Vitiligo Feels Like – Episode 18

This is a vitiligo awareness episode. I decided to use this podcast as a platform to create awareness of vitiligo in the Issues segment. Vitiligo occurs when pigment-producing cells ie melanocytes die or stop producing melanin; the pigment that gives your skin, hair and eyes colour. The involved patches of skin become lighter or white.

The essence of this awareness is to let you know that there is a thing like vitiligo and there is nothing superstitious about it. I’ve heard people say unbelievable things out of ignorance and lack of empathy about this and it breaks my spirit.

I hope this short amazing conversation with Kandice Benford makes you see that what makes life beautiful are the varieties and differences. Here is a short biography of Kandice Benford who was our guest on this episode.

The Reality Check segment of this episode is a reminder to call all our loved ones and friends and tell them we love them today.

We addressed people that won’t give you a prior notice before coming to your house. Man! It is so annoying! Lol!


Always call your friends or relatives first before going to their house. Don't call when you are already at the door. It doesn't make sense! Click To Tweet
