I started losing my hair when I was in year 5 and honestly I was so scared and confused. I started getting anxious and stressing about what might happen if people found out so no one at school knew. It just got worse and worse till I couldn't handle people constantly asking questions about where I kept going so I started telling a couple of my closest test friends who where so supportive and didn't treat me like I was fragile. I was lucky my hair grew back and quite quickly too.

When I went through what I went through I didn't Know about Alopecia UK and know I wish I had because I would have helped me so much. I want to help out so that others can get the support that I would have loved.

I plan on running a triathlon in support of Alopecia UK. More details to come. Alex Clark Richardson
