Last year I met the most amazing mum at my sons nursery, She is confident, beautiful, funny, kind, out going, happy, loving and she has a beautiful family, she has become what I can only describe as my best friend.

Soon I started to notice her hair was falling out, not a little its was coming out in clumps people who know and love her started to worry!

I want to support her in whatever way I can I started to think maybe if she wasn't the only one in the play ground when we went to pick up the kids that had no hair maybe she would feel just the smallest bit better, not so alone.....(I know i'll shave my head too)

Over the months I have seen how hard this really affects every aspect of her life,
and yet she still has the biggest smile and is always laughing and joking she is incredible.

The more I thought about the situation she is in the more I wondered if I could do more to help people in the same/similar situations so thats why I came to alopecia UK.

Alopecia UK is a small charity working to improve the lives of those affected by alopecia. The charity has aims around Support, Awareness and Research.

Alopecia UK relies on the support of fundraisers and donors to continue the fantastic work it does.

Thank you for supporting me with my fundraising efforts. I really appreciate your support and so does Alopecia UK!
