Sabrina is blessed to have the problem of dinosaurs living in her curly thick hair. Over 60 million people in the United States experience some form of hair loss and many of them are children. Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disorder that can result in erratic hair loss. Approximately 2% of Americans suffer from this skin disease, and it can affect anyone regardless of age and gender. The most common symptoms include bare patches on the scalp and potential for widespread hair loss such as total baldness.
Children suffering from this condition face tremendous challenges, particularly in school settings, where the stigma of being different is often not embraced. The National Alopecia Areata Foundation offers support and tools to help children and their families overcome emotional pain, build self-confidence, and provide classroom education that is sometimes needed, to advocate for them.
“We encourage parents and educators to contact NAAF to help make every school a safe place for students with Alopecia Areata – and safe for students with any form of autoimmune disease or skin disease or hair loss or emotional pain or perceivable difference.” Quoted from the NAAF website.
