Vicki Lawrence is one of the most beloved TV personalities of her generation. While her fans know her for iconic sitcoms, such as Mama’s Family and The Carol Burnett Show, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, many may not know she has chronic idiopathic urticaria, or CIU, a form of chronic hives with no known cause.

October 1 has been set aside as World Urticaria Day, which is dedicated to raising awareness of the condition among patients, healthcare providers, public officials and the media.

When Vicki was diagnosed with CIU, she quickly realized that reliable public information about the condition was very limited. She decided to share her story and become the face of CIU & You,

SHE’S KNOWN FOR ICONIC SITCOMS LIKE MAMA’S FAMILY AND THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW, WHICH IS CELEBRATING ITS 50TH ANNIVERSARY THIS MONTH.
