Hi, I'm Anna Reeve (Fitzpatrick). I have had alopecia since I was 7. Used to model (bald) in New Zealand and around the world and am now happily married starting a new chapter in my life. I hardly ever log on to this site but happy to answer questions, best way is to seek me out on at www.annareeve.co.nz
I just had a txt from matthew (founder of princess charlotte alopecia foundation) and he told me one of the men who attended our ball from the government read a speech in parliament yesterday. He said that alopecia suffers are going to receive a $70 allowance per week to help out with wigs etc.
I have looked online but haven't seen any news about it yet. But for you aussies I would look out for some info and get in to contact with someone about it.
I saw your response to Sharon's questions about cutting the new wig..."if you cut whispy bits along the edges you can wear a pony and hide the wigs edge. message me on my page with your email and i will send you photos of how i have done mine". I was wondering if you might consider sending me some photos. I'm struggling with the first cut of my Freedom wig and some visuals would be priceless. Also, I ordered my first with movement and am thinking of ordering my second (I'm going to be proactive and order now since the wait is long) in straight. I have only worn this one 5 times (need to get the haircut right!) but I can tell that I will want to straighten it and I'm sure that too much heat will not be good over time. Thanks, Shannon
I'm a girl from Spain and I am great fan of yours. And I wonder:
As can you work as a model have alopecia?
in my country reject me.
Give me some tips or something to help me to follow in your footsteps.

I noticed on magazines and stuff that you said you never fitted in at school well for me its like i fit in way more because im bald because people love how different I am. I think you are so beautiful and that you represent us boldys proud! im from n.z too! xx
Hi Anna, just wanted to say hello. I am new to this site, my daughter has AA & we are awaiting the arrival of her Freedom Wig & looking forward to her being able to continue living her life to her fullest potential. You are a true inspiration, many thanks for your positive role modelling :)
