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!


Big Supporter Sunday thanks are in order for Pam, Robyn, Scott and Narelle!
These hair donation heroes are helping to make wigs more affordable for people who need them, and enable AAAF to continue our Wigs for Kids program which helps families affected by alopecia.

We couldn't be more thankful to our community for their ongoing support of our Hair Donation Program. It's become bigger than we could have imagined since we launched in 2012 and we can't wait to see where the rest of 2017 will take us.

We're especially excited to be able to thank our many donors who also participated in Shave For A Cure - It's wonderful to see so many people helping two fantastic causes with one good deed.

Check out the man behind the mask - or rather, behind the beard! Grumps said goodbye to his beautiful beard yesterday, and this fantastic campaign has raised over $2500 to go towards alopecia support and research! Absolutely amazing results for a campaign run in support of a friend with alopecia.

Grumps and the Great Shave fundraiser is still live if you would like to show these wonderful people your support and help AAAF to continue to improve the lives of people with Alopecia Areata.
