I have a 9 year old son that has had alopecia areata since he was 5 year old. We decided to shave his head (after talking it over with him) Christmas break during his Kindergarden year. He is a very brave little boy. He has had struggles throughout the years, but recently he had a bad emotional breakdown. It was because of a stranger that rudely came up to him and was talking about his head. We are looking for friends that can relate to our situation. I also started an awareness event on facebook considering September is Alopecia Awareness month. Please search "September is Alopecia Awareness Month" on facebook and join us in spreading the word. If you can't find it, find me, Terrie Valle Goben, and I will send you an invite. I am looking forward to making great friends here =) <3
