Alopecia Areata Awareness Blog Train

I had never heard of Alopecia Areata prior to joining this blog train. One of the participants has a six year old daughter that suffers from the disease. Can you imagine being six years old and losing your hair? Children can be so cruel! I'm dedicating this mini kit to Jenny's daughter. You can read about her here.

According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, alopecia areata affects 2% of the population - that is more than five million people just in the U.S.! Alopecia areata is an autoimmune skin disease that causes bald spots on the scalp and other parts of the body, and in extreme cases can result in complete hair loss. I learned a lot about the disease by reading this article from the New England Journal of Medicine.

Here is my contribution to the blog train:
