    Gemma's link with alopecia: 

    "I became a group leader in 2018 after my daughter was diagnosed with Alopecia at the age of 4, now 8, I realised that there was very little local support. With the knowledge I gained, and my amazing inspirational daughter, I started the first kids Essex support group for children with Alopecia and their families. We can now share our knowledge and support, and learn more from all the others that we meet on this journey."
