Yes, another Catherine!

I just received my hairpiece in February. I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata at about the age of 14. My family and I didn’t know what to do. We went to doctor after doctor after doctor, and that’s when I was told to go see a Children’s Mercy dermatologist. I had treatments every 3-6 months. When I was in school I just had small patches of hair. But when I was in my senior year of high school I stressed out a lot about my classes so I could graduate. The day I graduated I had a full head of hair, past my shoulders. But shortly after I graduated I was losing my hair more and more. During my times of hair loss, I was afraid of being stared at. I had hard times covering it up so that people wouldn’t notice. With the support of my family, it was time that we talked to my doctor about my hair. My doctor decided to try a new treatment. She also asked me if I wanted to get a wig and I said I would love that. That’s when she told me about “Locks of Love”. After going through the process of getting a hairpiece I can finally say that I can wear this realistic hairpiece, I can go out and enjoy the things that I loved to do before I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. I feel more confident, I feel me again. Thank you to the “Locks of Love” organization for helping me get this wonderful hairpiece!
Much love,

Catherine’s Story

I just received my second “Locks of Love” hairpiece in December and I cannot be more thankful. I have struggled with Alopecia since I was a little girl and was bullied in elementary school. Since I got my hairpiece, I have been able to do things that I never thought I would be able to do. I am now performing at my local performing arts theater and recently had a lead role in a musical. I know that I would not have had the confidence to stand on the stage and perform the way I did if I did not have my hairpiece.

There are no words that can describe how thankful I am for the help that you have given me. Having a hairpiece has made it much easier for me to handle my Alopecia and feel beautiful. Thank you again for allowing me to have a hairpiece!
