In April I discovered my first patch of hair loss on the back of my head, it was a feeling I’ll never forget. I must have cried enough to fill a river. Over the next few weeks I discovered more and more patches and with each patch brought more tears.

Losing your hair doesn’t sound too bad until it happens. ‘Oh well it’s only hair’ but it actually feels like a pretty big part of you when you start to lose it.

So now I’m taking control. I’m shaving my head, and hopefully raising some money for Alopecia UK at the same time. 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!
