Gemma's link with alopecia: 

"My name is Gemma, I am married with two children, and have a part time job as a Chronic pain physiotherapist. Our daughter showed signs of Alopecia 3 years ago when she was 4. I have found local support really sparse, so I have decided to start the first Essex group for children with alopecia and their parents. I hope we can all support each other through life's journey."
