Model, business owner, and mother-of-four Iomikoe Johnson, 37, from Lake Charles, Louisiana first noticed a tiny spot of white skin under her arm 12-years ago.
At first, she thought she had cancer but it then spread to her eyes and genital area.

Iomikoe contemplated taking her own life as strangers would stare at her in the streets with some even refusing to shake her hand.
She would spend up to an hour a day on her makeup to cover up and would only wear long sleeved clothes.
‘I got vitiligo when I was twenty-five-years-old and I’ll never forget it, I was devastated, I felt like my world had been shattered,’ she said.
‘My first spot was under my arm where no one could see. When I was a kid, I used to get bullied for having dark skin and now I’m two different colors, so I feared I would have to re-live that experience all over again.
