My 3 year old daughter has alopecia and in January asked me to get rid of my hair. I did and it has taught me so much about the strength in both of us as well as my 2 year old who seems to almost wish she didn't have hair either now.
Hi, my daughter will by 6 in May and she lost all her hair almost 3 years ago. I'm sure she'd love to be friends with your daughter. We live in Upstate NY near Syracuse. Even being penpals would be awesome, she loves getting mail.
How old is your daughter? Was she born with the Alopecia or was it a gradual process? If it is too personal to share, that too is fine. I have my 5 year old that was born with extremely fine hair, soooo fine that sometimes I can see her scalp. I work in dermatology and know that first they would do a punch biopsy then depending on the kind of alopecia she has, I could start injections of steroid, but this stuff has side effects and to me I just dont want to subject her to that. I think it will be her decision. Your thoughts?
Happy Birthday!!! Your daughters are beautiful as are you. I have much respect for you for shaving your head for your daughter. My friend Lori also keeps her head shaved for her 6 y/o daughter with Alopecia. Big hugs to you and again, Happy Birthday from a fellow Cancerian. (mine was yesterday!!)
Love and Hugs,
Wow..thats awesome that you shaved your head for your daughter! I have alopecia and so does my six years old daughter! I was just diagnosed in February and it really hurt my self esteem alot, but then a month later I found a bald spot in the back of her hair! So sad...well good luck to all of you!
