Vancouver Alopecia Areata Support Group


Vancouver Alopecia Areata Support Group

Hello Vancouverites! Connecting is one of the best ways to feel happier and become more informed! This is a supportive and positive group where all of us - new to alopecia or experienced, hair-wearer or au natural, seeking treatment or not - all come together and be supportive, informative, and positive for one another. Come to our monthly meetups, or start by joining this group to be posted of upcoming meetups!

If you want to talk to someone on the phone, posting on the wall here is a great way to start too!

JLo and Erin are currently leading this group, as I (Tanya) will be exploring Shanghai for a while.

If your kid /teen has alopecia, please contact me or Jana and we'll put you in touch with other parents! It'll be, I believe, quite awesome for your child :)

Upcoming Meetups

This group gets together monthly at one of the members' homes - a cozy, positive, and fun environment, for those with alopecia. We are here to support one another, and every meetup has been amazingly mood-lifting.

Join us here and we'll send next meeting details to you in a group email!

You can always get a hold of JLo and Erin via AW messaging or at alopecia.vancouver[at]

We are affiliated with CANAAF (Canadian Alopecia Areata Foundation).

This is an open and supportive discussion about what members are looking for from our group. Perhaps you were with us from the start. Perhaps you just joined us. And perhaps you don't know what you are looking for, but will know it when you find it!…Continue

Sorry, I can't make the meeting. I just realized i'm in a workshop that same day:(   

Comment by JLo on Saturday

Lea, let me know when you have your passport in your hands and then we will plan a meeting and arrange for Shari to come up too. Paperwork always takes longer than expected so, I think we should wait. Should be fun, when it all comes together!

Hi Everyone!

Erin is hosting the next meet up on Saturday, April 26th from 1-5, come for the amount of time you can...and If you could bring a light snack to share that would be great. I will not be there as my cutie, patootie nephew will be in town, and I am very excited to see him! The founder of this group,Tanya, may be in attendance :)

Take care and I look forward to seeing you all in May, JLo
