When I was as young as 7 years old, I noticed my hair would occasionally fall out in clumps but it would regrow immediately.The first time it occurred, we were concerned but really did not think anything of it. Then about 6 months later it happened again. At first glance, my mom thought I was going through a stressful moment. However at 7 years old, how much stress could I have endured?
After going to the doctor and giving them a scalp sample. I was diagnosed with a mild case of Alopecia. My doctor warned me that after a certain point in my life, my hair will no longer grow back. He was right! I am 23 years old and my entire frontal area is bald :( I never imagined I would be bald in my 20s. Not that many people understand how damaging this is to my confidence. I am consistentlydepressed and I can’t stop thinking about how this disease has negatively effected my life.
I never leave the house without a wig. That means in my 20's, I can't go swimming, I can't go on roller coasters or enjoy an amazing breeze without worrying that mywig will fly off of my head. I do not date because I am terrified of exposing mysecret. I need a permeant solution that will allow me to go on with my life. After a consolation I received both good and bad news. The good news was that doctors can take a chunk of my scalp from the donor area of my head and transplant individualfollicles in my scalp.
The Bad news is that it will cost approx. $18,000. All I have saved up is $3000. I really need your help and support to help raise the remaining $15,000 so I can move forward with this procedure. Even if it is $1, that is one dollar closer to my goal. Thank you so much for your support
