    Jennifer's link with alopecia: 

    Hi everyone! I'm Jen and I have Alopecia Universalis. I've grown up with alopecia since I was 2 years old, and had various different types; universalis, totalis & areata.

    I wanted to become an AUK Leader as growing up with alopecia had it challenges and rewarding moments. I want to support & help others, share some hints & tips for making living with alopecia that little easier, and most importantly have fun! My aim with our group is to be welcoming, friendly and provide the option to try something different if you would like. I'm also only an email away if you'd like a chat. No question is too small! See you all soon!
