About Me:
My name is Jennifer I am making this page with my niece Merari,she is only six years old and she has Alopecia areata. She is a wonderful little girl with a BIG heart. She loves to read and write her own books, going to church and singing. I am making this page for her because my family and I do not know much about Alopecia and we would like to learn as much as we can about it. We want to find ways to help Merari deal with this at times frustrating disease, that has taken 100% of her hair in less then a year. Merari is beautiful and energetic, she is one of the brightest kids in her first grade class and her grades reflect it. Although Alopecia areata has taken away her once long curly hair, she is still very healthy and we thank God for that every day. We hope threw this page to meet great people that can help us understand Alopecia more. Thank you for viewing our page and Welcome!!
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata
Are you age 18 or older?
No - I am not 18 or older
Hi my name is Miraida and I am Merari's mom. Jennifer is my sister. My daughter is trying to understand what this is and why her hair is falling off the way it is. Like my sister said my daughter has lost 100% of her hair since April of this year. It has happened really fast. Although she has had Alopecia Areata since she was 2 1/2 years old but is was just one or two spots at a time. She would get shots and her hair would grow back. We seemed to have it under control. But this year it has been different. We have done topical treatment as well as shots and oral medication to control the loss. It hasn't really worked the way I would want. She wears a hat and she is getting really tired of it.
As of December 2008 Merari wears a wig and feels very comfortable and happy with it. Thank God for those organizations out there like childrenwithhairloss.org that help children like my daughter. We are not under any type of treatment right now, we are letting things be as they are. Until we see a miracle!.God has given us peace through all of this and this is important to me.

Here is an update on how Merari's first wig consultation went....well...it went VERY WELL!! Thank God.



Phew :-) ....because we were very nervous at first and were unsure what to expect. We had many question and some concerns, as you can image. The consultant was very kind and was able to answer all the questions. The most important thing to us was that Merari find a wonderful wig that she would love to wear.The other concern was the cost. We wanted Merari to have a nice and natural… Continue

Hi everyone this is Jennifer, Merari's aunt. I just wanted to share with all of you that tomorrow is a big day for Merari, she will have her first wig consultation. This is a bitter sweet moment for me and I think for my sister Miraida as well.Merari seems to be excited about it! But us big people are still trying to get our heads around this whole thing.

Hi Jennifer, how is Merari doing? Did she have a good experience with looking for a wig?

Your little one is so cute. She is exactly like my daughter because Amber also has a disney princess obssession as well. Her birthday cake also had the princess picture on it as well.

It is though I know and I just wanted to let you know that you are indeed not alone on this journey eventhough at times you might feel as if you are.

Amber did loose 90% of her hair within about six months as well. But it did all grow back and than she started getting pactches and now it is growing back again so I guess this is the unpredictability of it and we just need to take it as it goes. It is sad sometimes so I can understand exactly where you are coming from but I always keep reminding myself to thank the lord that it is nothing else....and this has helped me come to acceptance. I have my days but all in all I have come a long way and I talk openly about it to other parents at her school and teachers. This has help me and her alot.

Hi north neighbor :) I'm from Northwest Ohio, 45 minutes south of Toledo, so I've heard of Lansing. I've had alopecia areata since I was 11, and universalis since I was 23. Unfortunately as I got older my disease progressed. Merari seems like a sweet girl and looks like she has a load of love surrounding her, which is very important! My family was my strength during this process and haveing their acceptance and encouragement is what helped me accept my self. Everyone is different, sometimes the difference is more obvious in some than others.
