Amy's link with alopecia: Amy first spotted two small patches in October 2007 (age 24). The two small patches quickly re-grew but she then developed Alopecia Universalis in 2010. Over the past 7 years, Amy has had different degrees of regrowth. Any regrowth is patchy and prone to fall out again. Amy is comfortable with her alopecia these days but would still love for her hair to make a full return. From Amy:"Although I am at ease with my hair loss, I remember vividly how hard my first year with alopecia was. It's for this reason that I am passionate about helping others with alopecia. We have a comfortable and private room in the Queens Hotel Leeds for our Monday evening meetings, which is attached to Leeds train station. For 2020, I am also introducing Saturday meetings in the John Lewis Community Hub, providing those who cannot get along to a Monday evening meeting the option of a weekend meeting time. We have group members who travel from York, Sheffield, Harrogate, Skipton, Wakefield and Halifax (and lots of places in between!). I look forward to meeting you!"
