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!

Fantastic thank you's are in order for these fabulous hair donors!

To Manjula - Thank you not only for your gorgeous long locks, but also your very sweet message to us: "Thank you for giving me this opportunity. Hopefully my donation becomes someone's happiness."

To Mia, who has been growing her hair for over two years to be long enough to donate and also raised over $300 towards the Wigs for Kids Program. What dedication! Thank you so much!

To Millie, who has been planning her cut for months - We hope you love your new style as much as your locks will be loved by someone who is able to get a wig because of your generosity.

To Paige - Thank you so much for your very kind words and generous spirit: "I thought it would be really nice to let someone else who cannot grow their hair have mine. I hope I put a smile on whoever gets my hair. Thanks AAAF for doing what you are doing"

And to Vicky, who is donating her hair in support of a family member with Alopecia Areata. What an amazingly selfless act for a loved one. Thank you so much.

All these outstanding supporters mean the absolute world to us at AAAF and we couldn't do the work we do without their help. <3
