NSW Events Manager- Michelle
Michelle developed her first small patch of alopecia areata at age 15, in 1992. It stayed quite small for about 3 years when Michelle rapidly started losing many patches of hair from her scalp, eyebrows, and eyelashes, which still constantly regrow and fall out. Michelle understands the rollercoaster of emotions that comes with alopecia, but she also knows that with some support you can live a happy and fulfilling life.
Michelle is married and a busy Mum of 5 girls! She has worked in Children’s Services for over 20 years and decided in 2021 to pursue a change of direction, and is now studying towards a Diploma of Counseling.. She has been organising events for the AAAF community in an unofficial capacity for several years, and now that it’s official we are excited to see more of her at our upcoming events.
NSW Online Support Group
Support groups are a fantastic way to get in touch with other people who are living with Alopecia Areata, to ask questions and find new friends. Our Facebook groups are closed groups and you will be contacted by an administrator to ensure you are joining the correct state group and are part of the alopecia community.
All the current events are listed in our Facebook group. Join here.
AAAF runs a wide range of events, from Open Days and Trivia Nights, to pizza dinners and casual catch ups over coffee. These events all aim to provide a supportive atmosphere and chance to socialise with other people who have Alopecia Areata and their families. .
