Hi, I just joined Alopecia World, and then Ohio Alopecians.  My 12 year old daughter started getting spots from AA about 4 years ago.  About one year ago, it progressed to full-blown AU, and it has been really difficult.  She is a wonderful, positive, beautiful young lady, but I am looking for a little help.  I do not have alopecia, so I can't really directly relate to what she is going through.  She has been positive and so strong through this all, but I think she would benefit from speaking with other alopecians.  Is there a support group or members of this group that are located near Columbus?

Also, any other meaningful advice is welcome.  She is my little girl, and I want to give her all the support, love and guidance that I can.

Contact www.naaf.org if you have not done so already.

Look for a local support group or start one if none are in your immediate area.




My son also has Alopecia.  Lucas was diagnosed last year in July and has had a terrible time socially.  We live in the Cleveland area. 

Sorry to hear that.  It is hard for anyone to deal with this, much less a child.  Have you worked with Wigs for Kids?  They are in Westlake, Ohio and are a wonderful non-profit that provides very high quality wigs to children suffering from hairloss.  My daughter received hers in May and it has been very helpful.
