Information

Vancouver Alopecia Areata Support Group

Hello Vancouverites! Connecting is one of the best ways to feel happier and become more informed! Come as you are, whether you are shy or outgoing. This is a genuine and fun 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. After 4+ years of running this group, I can say for sure that you'll feel better after a meetup! :)

Come to our monthly meetups, or, start by joining this group and be in the loop of upcoming meetups! Sometimes I include alopecia news / remedy / stories too.

If your kid / teen has alopecia, please contact us 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 us via AW messaging or at alopecia.vancouver[at]gmail.com

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

Next meet up: We meet about once a month. Please email Tanya at the emil address above!

Dear All,
I've set up our Alopecia Tips group! Now we can have open discussion on any alopecia topic, and choose which channels you want to get notified for. Much better than me forwarding emails to you! :)
Here's the invite link:
I'll also announce future meetups there from now on, so please join! It'll be very much worth it :)
 
I've set up channels for "tips for eyebrows", "tips for wigs", "tips for the mind", "tips for parents", "tips for dating", etc. 
If you have any questions or suggestions, let me know!
xoxo

Hi Nita,

You can claim the wigs part of your taxes under medical (you will need a doctors note).

Comment by Nitter on January 23, 2018 at 2:46pm

Thank you so much Sandra!! That is very helpful to know. We are self employed, so no extended benefits here. Everything we are doing for her now is out of pocket. I did see that form on Canaaf website, but I don't think we would qualify for assistance. So I think we are going to start shopping around for wigs to get an idea for her. Thank you so so much for all the quick info ladies! We are new to all of this, so you have already been so helpful!

Thanks

Nita
