About us Our team Staff Amy Johnson Who am I? I'm Amy, Alopecia UK's Communications Manager. I started volunteering for the charity back in November 2012 and became Communications Manager in July 2014. I live with my Labrador, Buddy, in West Yorkshire. I enjoy long walks with my daft dog, swimming and travel. I lost my hair in 2010. You can read my full alopecia story here. What are my hopes for Alopecia UK? I would like to see Alopecia UK build on the strong foundations it has established since the charity began in 2004. I want the charity to be able to provide more services for those with alopecia through an extended support group network. I'd like Alopecia UK to continue its work in raising awareness of the condition. I believe awareness is key to having our voice heard. I want Alopecia UK to be the charity that every man, woman and child affected by alopecia deserves. Favourite inspirational quote: You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
