Please be aware that any questions Kayleigh is unable to answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK Links with alopecia: From Kayleigh: "Having suffered with alopecia since an early age, I struggled through my teen years on my own. I discovered Alopecia UK in my early 20s and really wish I had sought support and advice sooner. The advice, support, events and friends made through the charity have quite honestly changed my life. I am a more confident individual and while I will never be happy that I have alopecia, with the help of the charity and those I have met through it, I am more able to cope with the condition and the effects it has. I hope that my facilitating a support group in Newcastle, they will soon feel the same and make connections with others who just "know" what it's like living with alopecia. I hope the group will be a supportive and safe environment for everyone who attends and that they can leave feeling like they've taken something away with them to help them with their journey."
