I read this quote the other day... "If you desire to make a difference in the world, you must be different from the world." - Elaine S. Dalton

I have realized that ignorance is rive in south Africa about alopecia, and have therefore decided to do a half Iron man in January 2015 for alopecia awareness! What craziness for a couch potato, but here I come!

Hi there. I'm so excited to release my website www.baldgirlsrock.com. I've had AU for the past 8 years, and AA for almost 30 before that. I've been working on a book for several years, and it's recently started to really take shape. I'm looking for 29 more stories from men, women and children from all over the world so we can all be fully represented. Please "like" my FB page Head-On, Stories of Alopecia to hear updates on how this project is coming together. I look forward to hearing from you, and to help tell your story.

Feel free to share the details of this message with others who have a story to tell. Thank you so much.

I have a new children's book that will be published in 2013. It has a small tie-in to alopecia. Until then, I've posted some of my artwork on cards and stamps for the holidays. These don't tie into the subject of alopecia but you might enjoy viewing them, anyway. You can see them, here:

We don't send as many cards as we used to...I kind'a miss getting and sending more Christmas cards. It's alwasy fun to check the mail and find a pile of season's greetings! Anyway, for anyone still thinking about cards...visit my site for some options. Have a very Merry Christmas...or Happy Holiday...or Season's Greetings...

I host an internet radio program which addresses issues related to foster care and would like to dedicate an episode to Alopecia.

Is there anyone here who experienced Alopecia as a child in foster care?

I'm also interested in interviewing those who developed Alopecia as adults, whether having experienced foster care or not.

I can be contacted at Ms.E@forachildsheart.org
Please feel free to share this with others!

Hi Deeann, sounds like interesting project, i could be willing to to contribute into your work, just specify pls what type of respondents you are looking for, such as probably diagnosis, duration of the issue, age, level of adjustment, something else. as for myself, I did not get any diagnosis (but most likely it is AGA) and rather in the process of acceptance that at its final point

Hi there. Just looking to see who might be interested in participating in the content of the book I'm writing. This particular group is exactly what I'm looking for. I'm looking for those who are interested in sharing their stories with regards to moving beyond diagnosis to acceptance, as well as how you got there. Contact me here on AW to get if interested. I'll be in DC next week if anyone is heading that direction. It's always better to talk in person if possible. Hope to hear from you.

If find now that when I made the decision to not wear wigs anymore, it has given me a freedom to speak out loud about Alopecia. I've met so many people that have come up to me asking about my shaved head. It's funny to me because where I live, few people smile at you, let alone talk to you. But since going bald, people smile at me (not laugh) and ask me questions, and I enjoy telling them what I have and how I've accepted it. So facinating! I like it. It has given me a confidence I've been lacking for a very long time.
