Hello my name is Monica and I was diagnosed with alopecia at the age of 12. My parents and I were devastated! I had to endure seeing several doctors/dermatolgist! My parents were told that there was no cure for my disorder. I was a depressed little girl. As I became older I wore wigs and hair pieces. I endured bully's pulling it off for laughs. I had a lot of fights from being bullied. As a adult it is very heartbreaking to see children enduring the pain of having the same disorder! I am passionate about helping children and other adults suffering with the pain that comes with alopecia and other rare disorders! I'm asking for any amount small or large to help with support and more research!!! Thank you for your generosity!
