Amy's link with alopecia: Amy first spotted two small patches in October 2007 (age 24). The two small patches quickly re-grew but she then developed alopecia universalis in 2010. Over the last couple of years her hair has started to grow back a bit. Any re-growth is patchy and prone to fall out again. Amy is comfortable with her alopecia these days but would still love for her hair to make a full return.
