Alopecia Awareness Month

September 13, 2023

As we recognize National Alopecia Month we would like to share ways you can learn more and get involved. Alopecia can affect individuals of all ages; about 1 in every 1,000 children and teens experience alopecia (Ntl. Alopecia Areata Fd.). Alopecia is an autoimmune condition that damages hair follicles and causes hair loss. It can affect hair on the scalp, eyebrows, or anywhere on the body.

It’s estimated that 6.7 million people in the United States have alopecia; of the children served by Wigs for Kids about 57% have alopecia. You can get involved to support individuals who have alopecia – following are some suggestions:

· Learn More About Alopecia- visit

· Make a Donation to Sponsor A Child through Wigs for Kids – visit SPONSOR A CHILD

· Wear Blue to show support for someone you know with alopecia
