Since the day we are born, each and everyone of us has something special and beautiful. Some children have tempers from birth, while others are more collected. However, everyone has a different perspective.
The fact that we are all identically built and that we have mostly learned to embrace and cherish our diversity is one of the best aspects about being human.
Nicole Hall worries that because of Winry’s distinct outlook, she might have a difficult life as she gets older. Her mission is to raise public awareness of congenital melanocytic nevi.
Congenital Melanocytic Nevi (CMN): What Is It?
Congenital melanocytic nevi are moles that are present from birth or that appear within the first few months following birth.
They are pretty usual and typically do not have an adverse effect on health. They may, however, provide risks. The moles may need to be removed in certain cases of CMN, although the majority of cases never require treatment. Usually, this is done to reduce the risk of skin cancer or to enhance look…
The world will be a wonderful place as long as we can live in harmony with one another’s diversity. If we divide as a species due to our differences, we seek division.
Winry was unique among the newborns when she was born. They initially believed it to be a bruise, but later discovered it to be a congenital melanocytic nevus.
“When they brought her to me, I initially believed it to be a bruise. My spouse and I quickly realized that it wasn’t a bruise at that point.” Nicole Hall, the mother, said “I thought it looked a lot like a mole.”
According to a study by doctors Harper Price of Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Heather Etchevers of Marseille Medical Genetics, she suffers from a disease that results in numerous black and brown patches on her body.
As we previously mentioned, with all moles, particularly one that size on her face, there is a chance that it could turn into melanoma, a kind of skin cancer. Although the risk is minimal, Nicole always makes sure to wear a hat when they are outside. She also applies sunscreen to Winry and takes all necessary safety measures.
“Our number one goal is her wellbeing. She has to be protected from the sun. I take extra care when wearing hats and such items. We’ll definitely grow up to consider our frequent dermatological visits to be our best friends,” Nicole adds.
The parents of Winry are aware that she will encounter rude classmates who will point, stare, and yell at her. They are committed to assisting in the spread of knowledge regarding her disease as a result.
Many others are seeing birthmarks like hers for the first time, which is one of the reasons Nicole enjoys sharing. “This is a good topic for parents with their kids to see kids have differences, or for those parents who do have a kid that looks like Winry or has any kind of birthmark to have their child represented,” said Winry’s parents.
Winry’s parents hope she embraces her appearance while she is still young so she will be able to deal with it later in life. She is a very happy and healthy young girl.
She simply radiates happiness. She virtually never stops laughing or screaming. She’s the happiest baby I’ve ever seen, the mother exclaimed.
Nicole is raising awareness of her daughter’s condition through social media, particularly TikTok, and parents of children with CMN have already gotten involved.
They are aware that they are not alone.
