Amanda's link with alopecia: 

My hair started falling out when I was 12 years old and within six months I was totally bald. On my 13th birthday, I went wig shopping, which I thought would be the answer to all my problems, but ended up coming away from the shop feeling worse than ever. I am pleased to tell you that 30 years later I love my wig - and tattooed eyebrows and false eyelashes! Although I have always been comfortable talking about my alopecia, I have often found it a difficult subject to broach. If my experience can help others, whether they need to talk freely and openly about their personal experiences or the obstacles they face, then I’ll be delighted. My hope is that I can help support and encourage them, while learning from them also.
