Tommy was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata in 2018. It started with a small patch the size of a 5 pence piece. He has had some months where he lost around 40% of his hair, when it was at its worse. It’s all so unpredictable and varies now from month to month. Patches grow back & more arrive. He will always have this condition,

And we don’t know what the future may hold for his hair. But at the moment it’s under control & we’re seeing some good progress with loads of regrowth. He takes it all in his stride & it doesn’t bother him ever. I pray this continues when he starts senior school in a couple of years time. I’m doing this to raise awareness for my brave boy & everyone else that is going through this.
