I am 17 years old and suffer from a skin condition called Morphea and Vitiligo. Last August I noticed a small patch of hair loss which got bigger. I saw my GP who knew of my skin condition and referred me to a dermatologist. It was then that I was told I also had alopecia.

I am currently undergoing different treatments to encourage the regrowth of my hair. I would like to raise money to help in the research that Alopecia UK does.

Along with my dad, I will be running the Beyond the New Forest 10K run in October. We both aren’t the best of runners and will be training leading up to the event.

Any support would be amazing and much appreciated. Thank you. Ben & Steve.
