September is alopecia awareness month. Before I got alopecia myself, I had no idea what it was (neither did my GP) which is why awareness raising is so important for charities like Alopecia UK. Fundraising is just as important as AUK relies on the support of donors and fundraisers to continue the work they do.

AUK were invaluable to me when I first lost a lot of my hair. The support groups they have helped me to feel less alone and find humour and happiness in an illness that can sometimes feel hopeless. If you can, please consider donating to my fundraiser! Your money goes towards furthering research, organising awareness and fundraising events, supporting sufferers and so much more.

Thank you!!!!! Laura Russell
