Reeka Maharaj was 11 and visiting a friend's house when she ran her fingers through her hair and felt a bald spot. "I told my friend I had to go home, I've got to do something," she says. "I rode my bike home and sat in the bathroom for about 30 minute, in shock." Maharaj was diagnosed alopecia areata. Her hair grew back, but then, when she was about 22, it fell out again.

Please be advised that we are currently reviewing the arrangements in place for facilitating the meetings for the children. Unfortunately the current set up is not proving effective. We are asking to see if there was any parents that would be interested in volunteering to take over the Children's Group as a sub group.

The plan would be that we would direct any parents looking for support for their children and indeed as parents to this group,  but ultimately it would the responsibility of this sub group to organise the meetings and maybe events that would be more suitable for children.

Parents often contact us and there is a need for support in this area but if we have no response to the expression of interest, we will be unable to continue due to its unsuitablity - which would be a shame.

 

We look forward to hearing from you and would love to see you there on 26/04/2018
