Anyone who knows me knows that my life hasn't always been without hurdles; these past 12 months have been bumpier than most and the additional diagnosis of Alopecia has been quite hard to digest. I will tackle this year in the only way that I know how, and that is by running. I would never have been able to have the confidence to brave shaving my head if it hadn't have been for the support from the other members of AUK, they made me see that my hair is just a very small part of who I am as a person. Its been a massive shock to myself and my children, but I'm determined to continue the positivity that has been shown to me by close friends and family and turn this diagnosis on its head. I am Jenni and I am a runner. I also happen to have a shaved head because my hair has decided to part ways with me... and for that, I am stronger than I ever have been. <3 please support this worthwhile cause. It means so much to me and my family <3 Thank you xx
