Powerful Campaign Urges People Living With Disfigurement To Love Their Scars

A powerful new British campaign is urging people living with disfigurements to embrace and love their scars.

The campaign, called “Love Disfigure”, is the brainchild of Londoner Sylvia Mac – herself a burns survivor – and aims to raise awareness of people living with scars. The campaign also hopes to change views of industries such as the fashion industry and arts and film to be more accepting of people with disfigurement.

To raise awareness that scars are nothing to be ashamed of, Love Disfigure recently held a swimwear photo shoot of a number of women and kids proudly showed off their scars.

Mac, herself, was badly scalded as a five-year-old said she’d suffered a lifetime of depression and anxiety from her scarring and wanted more people to feel comfortable in their skin.

“I campaign for those suffering with their disfigurement by raising awareness and showing support through my blogs and social media,” Mac said.

“I continue to share my photos and reach out to different industries so that people affected by their appearance can become Olympic swimmers, actors, actresses, dancers, lawyers, doctors etc. Don’t allow the way you look stop you from achieving.

“There is no need to hide your disfigurement,” and “our disfigurement is just an extra part of our uniqueness. We can all be beautiful people,” Mac said.
