One of our members (Sarah Peters) has written a play titled “Bald Heads and Blue Stars”. It will be screening at the University of Southern Qld next August.

Through this project she aims to raise awareness about Alopecia and share with a broader community the trials and triumphs that sufferers of Alopecia face each day.

Sarah interviewed a number of ladies from Qld for research and has sent a draft of the play to those involved. I was fortunate enough to be one of the lucky ladies and I must say, after having read the draft that she

has done an exceptional job and I am really looking forward to seeing the play.

Hi Everyone,

We now have a closed Brisbane / QLD group for those that wish to join a more private forum on facebook



we are still looking for supporters that may wish to help AAAF run a NT / TAS / WA facebook page. 

AAAF is run by volunteers who also work full time so any help we can get from people keen to get involved is great!!
