    Alice's links with alopecia: 

    I'm Alice and I have had alopecia areata for 13 years. I lost all my hair twice but it grew back each time and I'm lucky that I only have small, easily hidden patches at the moment.

    AA runs in my family - my mum, dad, sister and 8-year old nephew have all had patches too. I volunteered to run this group because I understand how unpredictable, isolating, and distressing alopecia can be.

    I hope that this group will help children (and their parents and even siblings) to make friends, feel less isolated, share knowledge, learn from one another and connect with other group members who have some understanding of what they're going through.
