My name is Bonnie 70 years young just diagnosed with the RARE form of scaring alopecia called Lichen Planopiliris. My Dermatologist/doc at University of Washington clinic did a double biopsy which is yet to come back but from the pic…"
I grew up never knowing what it was like to have hair or look like everyone else. I was diagnosed with AU when I was a baby and lost all my hair as a young child. I work now as a model in NYC trying to spread awareness about Alopecia and be some kind help to the community. I think visibility is very important because growing up, I never saw anyone like me. It wasn't until I was in my teens before I ever met anyone else with my condition.
My name is Bonnie 70 years young just diagnosed with the RARE form of scaring alopecia called Lichen Planopiliris. My Dermatologist/doc at University of Washington clinic did a double biopsy which is yet to come back but from the pic I saw and description, it matches what I see. So! Though this was a devastating diagnosis, I am moving into acceptance through prayer and meditation. I firmly believe we can be of help and comfort to others and that our main purpose is to of maximum service to our fellow human beings. You are an inspiration!!! I only imagine your journey with this condition. Thank you for opening up and OMG you are looking' good. Create great days for yourself and those around you.
