I know this may sound weird, but do your young children with AA hate Duck, Duck, Goose? My daughter is 6 and is totally bald. They play this game a lot at her dance and gymnastic classes. I noticed…Continue

Thank you so much for your comment. It`s an inspiration to see how young girls cope with this diagnosis. Maybe much better than the parents. I just hope people treat her ok in the future. Do you have any advice on how to answer people who ask? I want to be open about it, but what if she wants to be private about it when she gets older?
