“I was first diagnosed with Alopecia Areata when I was 8 years old, my teenage years were tough, but I especially recall my twenties and fearing that my patchy hair loss would show and somehow impact how I was regarded at work.  I finally lost all my hair at age 46 and found Alopecia UK and a supportive community of other people with alopecia, it was a game changer!  Losing my hair has challenged me to find my strengths, it took a while to get here, but I know I am a better person because of my alopecia journey.  Being a trustee will mean that I can help more people get the support they need at the point they ask for it.”
