Zoe first experienced alopecia areata when she was 11 years old. She had further patches in her 20s and lost about 80% of her hair in her most severe episode in 2020. In 2022, Zoe took part in the South Coast Ultra Challenge and raised over £2,400 for Alopecia UK.

“My latest episode of alopecia took a massive toll on my mental health. It was only when I began to be more open about what I was going through, and talking about it on stage, that I felt better. It made me realise just how important it is to discuss the condition.”
