My alopecia journey began a couple of years ago when I suddenly lost all my hair after a particularly stressful time in my life.
I've been fortunate to have amazing support from family and friends but it is an awful condition to cope with and without the help of Alopecia UK and their fantastic support groups I definitely wouldn't be where I am now.

I lost more than just my hair, most noticeably to me anyway I lost my confidence.I suddenly felt like I just couldn't do the things I'd done before. I used to love hiking in the hills but I began to feel really vulnerable and hardly able to put one foot in front of the other.
I'm hoping that by raising awareness and hopefully some money this will give me a little bit of that back.

I aim to walk 250 miles over the month and would be grateful to anyone who would like donate to my fundraising. Alexandra Morrison
