Please be aware that any questions Lois is unable to answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK. Lois' link with alopecia: Lois' daughter has had alopecia areata at different stages from two years old, through her teens and now as a young adult. From Lois:"By working with the charity I hope to help kids, their brothers, sisters and parents find a place to meet where they can play games, chat and just generally have a nice time together. Please get in touch if you have any ideas - happy to help! The group has only recently been set up and the first meeting was a great success with children with alopecia meeting other children and adults with the condition (some for the first time). Parents were able to meet to chat together and ask all sorts of questions - the meeting room is perfect so there is an option to be with the children or in a quieter room nearby! At the moment meetings will be twice a year but I am happy for anyone to contact me by email at any time. If I can't help I will do my best to find someone who can. I've had quite a few ups and downs as a parent of a child with alopecia so can understand how difficult it can be and how many questions you might have so please get in touch if you feel the need to."
