Camouflage Tattooing

Please please sign this petition!! https://www.change.org/p/minister-of-health-and-long-term-care-make-camouflage-tattooing-an-insured-service-in-canada

Disfigurement from scars, birthmarks, burns, etc. are a DISABILITY.

Please sign this petition! You could need this service tomorrow!

Camouflage tattooing could save thousands of people, including children, from the psychological grief that is suffered when one lives with a disfigurement such as a large scar, birthmark, vitiligo, etc. I speak from 20 plus years of experience of disappointing and painful laser surgeries, money, and time, all to have been done with very little progress and results. After years of appointments, doctors fees, applications for coverage, machines, numbing creams, tylenol, travelling, parkng fees, time away from school and work and my life, I have finally found the solution. Camouflage tattooing is the answer! I have tried camouflage tattooing and it works with unbelievable results!

Surgeries leave scars and does not work for everyone! We need coverage for tattooing for other disfigurements as well, such as surgery scars of cancer survivors, burn victims, etc.

Currently the Ontario Government covers laser surgery and other surgeries for people with disfiguring birthmarks (http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/public/p ... l_faq.aspx) but the results vary, are not long-term and eventually the area stops responding to laser treatments.

Currently, doctors are the only ones who can help people through surgeries but camouflage tattooing is another option and more people can help.

Help get people off of years of waiting on a list to be seen by a specialist who may only be able to provide mediocre results. Camouflage tattooing works and people could start to see results today!

Have a look at some facts:

The Human Rights Code describes disfigurement as a DISABILITY ( http://www.ohrc.on.ca/en/policy-and-gui ... disability).

In Canada, about 1.5 million people have a facial disfigurement. Each year, an additional 50,000 Canadians acquire one as the result of trauma, accident or medical condition. (http://www.monster.ca/career-advice/art ... figurement)

There are many causes of disfigurement – some acquired during life, others present at birth. Disfigurement can affect anyone at any time, at any age, from any ethnic group.
New research commissioned by Changing Faces has reached new estimates of the prevalence and incidence of disfigurement:
- 542,000 (or one in 111) people in the UK have a significant disfigurement to the face.
- 92,000 have congenital or birth conditions like birthmarks, cleft lips/palates
- 66,000 have disfigurements from accidents, such as burns and facial scars
- 40,000 have cancer-related disfigurements, from surgery for skin cancer
- 100,000 have disfigurements from facial paralysis including from stroke
- 220,000 have disfigurements related to skin conditions like psoriasis, vitiligo and acne
- 1,345,000 (or one in 44) people have significant disfigurement to their face and body.
- 415,500 people are expected to acquire a significant facial disfigurement in the period of a year, some of whom will not survive and some of which will be temporary.
This research influenced the development of interventions focused around social interaction skills training for people with a visible difference (Robinson et al., 1996). (https://thepsychologist.bps.org.uk/volu ... difference)
