Mandy Jenkins noticed the bright strawberry bump on her daughter’s neck the month after she was born.
It didn’t bother the mother of two other children because vascular birthmarks were common in her family. Her son has a spot under his arm that, after nine years, has faded to a pale pink.
Jenkins, who lives on the Grant/Pendleton county line and attends Williamstown Christian Church, kept watch over puckered spot and didn’t get worried until she noticed it was growing under her daughter, Naomi’s skin.
