March 2018 my beautiful cousin had been diagnosed with alopecia. Although suffering for 9 years previous she finally has the courage to go to the doctors and get a diagnosis. For 9 years she's battled with hair loss, with comments from people, the judgement that comes along with having no hair, as well as the looks and laughs from passers by. Everytime a new bald patch arises her confidence lowers. She's getting herself ready for all the negativity yet again. This has to stop! Alopecia isn't a negative thing! People with it aren't any less beautiful they're warriors to me and that's why i want to raise as much money possible. I will be undertaking a sponsored head shave in February to raise awareness for alopecia as it's causes are not yet known. I want to show everyone that being bald is beautiful!
