This year, I was honored to attend my first NAAF annual conference. Of course, I owe the privilege to the phenomenal woman of my dreams, my lovely fiancée Cheryl Carvery. She has attended and participated in the conference for 17 years, and this was the first time she asked her mate to accompany her. I'm delighted that I did because, not only was the conference itself great, but it simply made each of my days there to meet and spend time with so many of the wonderful members of Alopecia World!

Cheryl and I certainly did NOT attend the conference with a marketing mindset. In fact, it was our intention to avoid initiating any conversation about Alopecia World. So, we were pleasantly surprised, indeed, by the great number of people who sought us out and inquired about Alopecia World, expressed their heartfelt appreciation for this beloved community, or congratulated us on the amazing job we've done with Alopecia World. We truly felt their unfeigned love and gratitude and were deeply honored and inspired by it.

That's why I need to make it crystal clear that we are indebted to YOU, each and every member of Alopecia World; for it is YOUR insightful, inspiring, compassionate, consistent, and entertaining contributions to our beloved community that has made it everything it is. As Cheryl once commented, YOU, the richly diverse members of Alopecia World, have taken this to whole new levels. We see it. We acknowledge it. We encourage it. And we certainly love and appreciate every one of you for it.

Wishing you great joy and good success,

rj, Co-founder
Alopecia World
