Since its founding in 1987, the Sturge-Weber Foundation (SWF) has provided information, education and friendly support to adults and families of children with Sturge-Weber syndrome, a neurological disorder characterized by a facial port wine birthmark and often seizures and glaucoma. In 1992, the SWF expanded its outreach to include Klippel-Trenaunay (KT), a vascular disorder involving a port wine birthmark on the body or a limb. The SWF has initiated and supported comprehensive clinical and basic research into the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions, and continues to collaborate, translate the research, and encourage all expectations to improve patient quality of life.
