Helen's link with alopecia: Hello everyone and welcome to the Middlesbrough support group! I am a Nurse working in the Middlesbrough area with people affected by alopecia. I've met so many people who could benefit with talking to other people who are going threw similar experiences. I truly believe in face-to-face support, along with online groups. Knowing there were no groups close by, I wanted to close the gap and provide that service to our local area. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
