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.

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.

Very special Suppporter Sunday Thank You's are in order for Bethany, Catherine, Charlie and Louise!! These amazing individuals are helping people with alopecia to have access to wigs by increasing the hair available to make them, and by supporting AAAF's Wigs For Kids Program, which helps families with the costs of puchasing a wig.

We cannot thank you all enough for these generous and very beautiful donations. AAAF will take the best of care of your gorgeous locks and get them to our fantastic wig makers asap!

What a fantastic donation! This time of year is always very busy for our team as many Shave for a Cure supporters also donate those beautiful locks to help people with Alopecia Areata. It's so fantastic to see people helping two wonderful causes with one good deed!

Thank you for your support Georgia, and to 7 News Central Queensland for the shout out <3 Hopefully this story will help more people know about our program.
