I'd like to give back a little to the charity that has supported Mathew while he has dealt with negative reactions to his birthmark and his decision to have surgery to remove it. One very important support they provide is to fund a position with the Sick Kids in Edinburgh who works with children to help them through difficulties relating to a variety of facial disfigurements.
