We are fundraising for Alopecia UK because its a charity close to our hearts.
I am fundraising for Alopecia UK because I have had alopecia since I was 6 years old (I am now 27). I hope that by fundraising & spreading awareness of alopecia it will help people to understand what alopecia is & help to reduce the stigma people have (from my own experience).

I have had alopecia for 8 years now and no how important the expert support can be. So I would like to donate as much as I can to give everyone the same and more support than I did.
I (Maisie) have suffered from alopecia for many years, from the age of 12 years old. It first stared as small bald patches which would grow back, but I now have alopecia universalis therefore i have no hair on my head or anywhere on my body for that matter. I have always wanted to raise money for the research in to alopecia as I always found it hard not knowing the specific cause of it and therefore not having a treatment. It is also something not many people know about and so to raise awareness
To raise funds to help research the cause and hopefully a cure for all forms of alopecia. To raise awareness about alopecia and to help fund projects that provide support to alopecia sufferers.
I've always wondered whether I could shave my hair off, and the idea terrifies me! But then it occurred to me that 1. At least I have a choice as to whether to shave my hair off, and 2. Who says you need hair to be beautiful?
Having known people with alopecia, I appreciate the devastating effect that losing your hair can have on a person's self esteem. In some cases it can make it impossible to interact socially and in the workplace, and, in the case of children, in school.
Having developed Alopecia Areata myself, I am fundraising for Alopecia UK by shaving the rest of my head. Many of you will know how much this has affected me and I hope you will help me in reaching my goal of £150 towards the charity's ongoing research.
I was diagnosed with alopecia last year and would like to raise money for research.
We will be walking 100 miles over the space of a month and selling cakes to raise money for Alopecia UK. I would like to do this to raise awareness and help those who are in a similar situation to me.
