About Me:
Alright so .... I think a bunch of us know eachother but for those of you that don't ... i am Shannon I am 23 from Franklin,TN it is about 20 mins from Nashville. I am a full time student at Middle Tennessee State University. My friends are my world, i couldn't make it through anything without them, especially haveing alopecia. Iam pretty comfortable with Alopecia,though we all have out down moments!!!. besides that i am pretty much like a firecracker!!! i love to smile, dance and laugh!!! iam pretty hyper most of the time. At the conferences you can usually find me boucing around somewhere!!! Anyway ... here is my story...

MY STORy: When I was 3 my mom found a bald spot on top of my head. The Dr. said it would grow back and it did. When i was 7 I lost 75% of my hair on our move from New York to PA. Then lost almost all of it when I was 10 and moved here to TN. Some grew back but i always had patches till about high school. Probably for the past 6 years I have been Alopecia Universalis, which means I have no hair on my entire body. I have very few eyebrows but luckly my eyelashes grew back but are currently falling out again! I have to say it is the hardest stage of the disease. Having no eyebrows nor eyelashes makes you look somewhat like an alien! You have no expression to your face, what-so-ever. I guess all I can say is thank god for eyebrow pencils and fake eyelashes!!! Though it doesn't make the concept easier. Yeah, I don't have to wash my hair every morning, but playing arts and crafts on your eyes and etch-a-sketch on your face isn't the most fun in the world! (As most of you know)

Shannon-got your message and yes I'm not far from Nashville about 2 hours. I would like to come for the tournament but that is actually the day after my son's b'day and we plan to have a party that weekend. Let me know what you would need for a sponsor and maybe I could do that. If you have any other events in the future pls. let me know. Maybe next time I'm in Nashville we could meet up. There really is no one here in my community that I know with Alopecia. I would love to meet other people. Hope things go well with the tournament and like I said let me know if there is something I can do without being there that day. Take care and have a good week.
