Victoria's link with alopecia: From Victoria:"I am Victoria and I have had Alopecia Areata in various degrees from the age of 25. It started as hair loss under my ears and round the back of my hairline which is known as the Ophiasis pattern and started a year after my Dad was diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully he made a full recovery but unfortunately despite going through the process of falling out and regrowing, this new condition I found myself with did not recover. At its worst, I have been completely bald with no eyelashes which was a real turning point for me as I decided I needed support outwith family and friends. I needed to be around people who 'got it' which is why I contacted AUK to ask about settingup a support group in Glasgow. It's been the best thing I have ever done and have met so many wonderfully brave and inspiring people. My advice is to seek others in a similar position if you have this condition as hopefully you will feel the same benefits that I have."
