At the moment, I do not have any dates for upcoming meetings in TX. But each group tends to meet once a quarter. I would suggest you contact the following folks so they may include you in their email database to receive timely information regarding their next meetings.
There is a Dallas support group, a San Antonio/Central Texas group, and a brand new Houston support group. Here is the contact information.
Central & San Antonio
Best of luck to you! I hope to meet you at the next one!
Oh my gosh, I'm sure that was quite devastating for him. The Dallas support group has a few younger boys - so does the SA group - and both would be very helpful to become involved with. I would also suggest checking out the NAAF conference as well (you may have already done so). It is a wonderful opportunity to meet many families with young children with Alopecia. It will be held in July in Washington DC this year. I attended the first year I was diagnosed (at 9) and many years after, and it was life changing. It was so helpful to know that I wasn't alone and I met so many amazing people. My very best to you and your family. ~Kim
