Growing up I really struggled. And I mean STRUGGLED with being the “only” one with Alopecia. I went almost 16 years without ever knowing there were other people with the same condition. It was hard and incredibly confusing to be so different and to have no one to truly connect to that understood. This organization— Alopecia UK is bringing light to our condition and bringing smiles and joy along with it. Hair doesn’t equal beauty— it took me a long time to realize that. And the sooner others can realize that about themselves, that they are lovely, handsome, unique and bold— the better. Help me and help us let it be known that we are Alopecia BEAUTIFUL! 👩🏻‍🦲💛
