Alopecia doesn’t just affect those suffering from it. In fact, it can be just as devastating for that individual’s loved ones. For one mother Nancy, she knew something was wrong when her daughter, Lauren was just 8 months old. Lauren had a small bald spot on her head that the pediatrician said would go away over time. However, Nancy wasn’t so sure.
It wasn’t until Lauren turned five years old that she started losing her hair in clumps. That’s when Nancy’s suspicions were confirmed that her daughter had Alopecia. While a heartbreaking diagnosis, Lauren’s pediatrician encouraged Nancy to be strong and listen to her daughter’s needs while adjusting to this new reality.
