About Me:
My name is Catherine, I am 22 years old and from the New England area. I was diagnosed with Alopecia 9 years ago. I have AT but still have my eye lashes. My eyebrows are now just starting to fall out.
I was diagnosed the summer before i started high school so it was extremely hard for me. It took some time but I had the best family and friends in the world to help me through it. I joined the Cheerleading squad and lacrosse team in high school and that also helped..... I am now a senior in college and have taken part in both cheerleading and Lacrosse again.

When I was diagnosed I was in denial and refused to look into wigs because I knew my hair had to come back. Instead I would wear bandannas covering the spots and then eventually i started making my own black bandannas because black goes with everything! And now 8 years later I am having a hard time switching to wigs... Although I really want a wig! I have tried a few on, but I just think they look funny on me because I'm so used to the bandanna.

UPDATE: I am now wearing a locks for love human hair vacuum seal wig that my two sisters help make back when I was in high school... It just took me 4 years to wear it!

OK so September is Alopecia awareness month and in the past I would just tell my friends and family and just kinda spread the word. But this year I am a senior in College that has about 6,000 students at it. I am recognized all over campus and even outside of it, everyone knows "the girl in the black bandana." So this year my good friend is the editor in chief of the newspaper and I was thinking of writing an article spreading the word and explaining to my fellow students and faculty what I… Continue

Hi Catherine,
How are you? My name is Dotty and I live in NH. I wanted to let you know that we are planning an "Alopecia beauty day" at a boutique in Chelmsford, MA on June 7th as our first official awareness event for our newly incorporated non-profit New England Alopecia company. They are opening the boutique just for us and we can try on clothes, take lots of pics, and just have fun together. I got at least 40 dress up costumes for the kids. They will look so adorable. We are going to do a buffet brunch at the hotel nearby first and then go to the boutique. I hope you can make it. I know it will be great!!! Miss you much. Please let me know so we can do a head count for the restaurant reservations.
Love and Hugs,
Dotty
