Julia: 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!
Catherine - 21: Whether I have hair or not I am always thankful for what I have, rather on concentrating on what I don't have.
Cam 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.
Michelle: 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.
Sarah 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.
James 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.
Stella 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!!!!!
