"Alopecia stole my son's heart and soul. He is 16 now and has had AU since the month before his 11th birthday. His mental health has declined so badly that I literally just started a GoFundMe to raise funds to get him into residential treatment.…"
Mom of 2 boys - 10 & 12. My youngest (10) just diagnosed with Alopecia Areata in Feb 2017. He is such an amazing kid! He's an avid 'Scooterer' and is prospecting to get sponsored by one of two skate shops! 😎 He has been through so much already in his first 10 years but hasn't let any of it bring him down or keep him from living his life and doing all the things he loves. His dad is incarcerated and he's had to visit him in prison since he was 6 years old. For the last 6 years, I've been raising both boys on my own and do my best to encourage and support both of them in everything they do. We are not our circumstances and we can ALL achieve amazing things!
