Daneyl " the strands of me"
Stef 16 telling her story through a poem.
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.
TEDxSouthBankWomen speaker Michelle Law performed 'A Bald Woman's Guide to Survival' on Saturday December 1 at the independently organised event. http://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/4404420.html
Natalie, I am 25 and I have Alopecia Universalis. I have been wearing human hair wigs for the past 2 years and although there are tough days, I am more confident inraising awareness of this condition and telling people 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.
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. My mates all helped me out by shaving their heads to show support, which was awesome.

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.
