Alopecia has taught me valuable lessons and made me a stronger person, but I believe the impacts of this condition (especially the psychological ones) are underestimated. As a young, single female navigating alopecia has been an interesting (but at times, incredibly tough) process, and I think there remains a clear lack of understanding and awareness.

The Alopecia UK group has been an invaluable source of support for me and that's why I am fundraising for them. Jemma Boyle
