I am grateful for AW because it is a place where we can come together and share with each other. We all understand the terminology and we all understand what we're going through, every day. There are no groups here in Portland, OR, yet....so this serves that function well. I am happy to read what others write and learn from them.....and I am happy to share what I know or have gone through. Thank you AW, for being just the way you are.

Just to know there are others, so many others, out there who are dealing with the same thing I am makes me so grateful to be a part of this online community. AW makes me realise how courageous we all are in our own way, and inspires me to be upfront about my hairloss without feeling the embarrassment I used to. Thank you AW!!!
