JuliaWilsonJulia: Having Alopecia doesn’t have to be just bearable or just manageable. It will be part of you, but you can move on and it will not define you!
CatherineGrantCatherine - 21: Whether I have hair or not I am always thankful for what I have, rather on concentrating on what I don't have.
HeidiAHeidi: Alopecia isn’t something we should feel embarrassed or ashamed about.
stefStef: 16, telling her story through a poem.
camCam O'Rourke: 12, I first got AA in early 2010. It was a massive shock because it started off as just one tiny patch, and in about four weeks, it had all gone, apart from a couple of tiny patches.
MichelleMichelle: hair loss is something to be embraced. I'm ready for openness; I'm ready for people to be challenged; and I'm ready for bald women to feel empowered. I don't want to spend my life merely surviving as a bald woman. I'd much prefer to live.
SarahPSarah P: I’ve had ups and downs, I’ve been self conscious and I’ve been brave. I don’t know where I will be this time next year, or what my head will look like. But it’s an adventure, and its all part of my story.
JamesMillerJames Miller: Imagine you are 10 years old, and one morning you wake up to find you have a bald patch at the back of your head the size of a golf ball,this is what happened to me.
StellaStella 10 …..I’m VERY happy now in my school and I have a great family and friends and I’m happy to live a very bald and happy life!!!!!
Alex_WebAlex: Alison tells her story on son Alex ……We have a resilient, positive, strong willed young man. He may not have hair but he is healthy, wealthy and wise otherwise in his life – That’s the greatest gift of all!

News

Samantha is one of our gorgeous hair donors who has really gone above and beyond to champion alopecia awareness!

This isn't the first time she's donated her locks to be made into Wigs For Kids, but this time she's also been on the local news, in the paper, AND running a fundraiser all to represent AAAF. What a star! 🌟

We'd like to offer a huge thank you to Samantha for everything she's done to help us help people with alopecia areata, and also a big thanks to Jayme at Unique Beautique who did this fantastic cut pro bono to support same ❤

This week we'd like to offer huge Supporter Sunday thanks to Amelia, Emma, Lily, Mikako and Molly! These gorgeous girls have really gone above and beyond to make sure people with alopecia have access to wigs.

These generous donations will help AAAF to continue to run our Wigs for Kids program, which helps young people and their families have access to life changing support services. Without your help we wouldn't be able to do the work we do and we're extremely grateful for your support.

If you or someone you know is thinking about trying a shorter hair style, why not check to see if you're eligible to donate your hair have it made into wigs for people with alopecia, just like these fantastic supporters.
You can find all the details on our website: aaaf.org.au/get-involved/donate-hair/

Last week we shared an article about singer Alessia Cara, who wrote her hit song about her experience with alopecia. On a day when everyone is celebrating love, we think it's essential to remember that most important relationship - the one we have with ourselves. Check out clip from the music video, all about inspiring self love and self confidence. That's the spirit of #EmbraceAlopecia

(Oh and if Alessia's name or beautiful voice is sounding familiar, you might have heard her singing How Far I'll Go in the soundtrack to Disney's Moana!)

Supporter Sunday is a little late this week as we've been experiencing a few minor technical issues. Never the less, we'd like to offer our deepest and sincerest thanks to Grace, Isabella, Lily and Tanvi for these gorgeous hair donations!

We hope you all love your new styles as much as your hair will be loved as part of a wig for someone living with Alopecia Areata. Your support is hugely appreciated <3
