    Their link with alopecia:

    Andrea has had alopecia for over thirty-eight years and currently has alopecia areata.

    From Andrea:
    "Hi my name is Andrea Craig, I am 55 yrs old and have had Alopecia for 38 years.  I have been through all the stages and I currently have Alopecia Areata.  I am a good listener and I would like to pass on some help to others who are going through alopecia, as it's a journey of ups and downs."

    Pauline has had alopecia for over seven years and currently has androgenetic alopecia and lichen planus.

    From Pauline:
    "Having been on an Alopecia journey for some years, I am now much more confident about managing my condition and have developed little strategies which help me cope. I am more comfortable talking about this to others and if my experience can help others, I would be happy to help."
