Results: We have helped thousands of children, friends, family and others associated with alopecia with awareness! We continue to grow self-esteem because we can't grow hair but next up is our biggest challenge yet! We are now in need of more funds so we can accomplish a CAP Kid Group that is registered and active in each State. We are also looking have the first comprehensive feasibility study of how children and parents deal with this incurable autoimmune hair loss disease. We need to find another $200,000 to be able to do these things while continuing our mission for the kids!

Children's Alopecia Project is truly a magical organization. CAP has brought our family together with many other families that are facing the same challenges that we do -- and there is an instantaneous bond. We help each other get through the tough days and celebrate the amazing days. CAP focuses on building each child's self esteem. Through CAP, our family has had so many special experiences. We are all so grateful to this organization! We have become not only clients served, but also want to give back to this community and have become avid volunteers and advocates! We LOVE CAP!!!

My daughter (who was in Kindergarten) has Alopecia Universalis and lost all the hair on her head and the rest of her body last January. It was very quick and shook her self as teem. It mad her feel different and worried about making friends. We went to camp this year, so she could meet other children like her. My daughter never goes bald in public and at camp she ran out of the car with nothing to cover her bald head. She made friends and asked questions to others about how they cope and manage living with this condition...and yes all from someone about to enter the first grade. My daughter had a great experience and now she knows, she is not the only child like this and she is not alone.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would like to see more branches spread in more areas of the country.

I am a parent of a bald child with Alopecia. CAP is the only entity devoted to just kids with Alopecia.

4 years ago our daughter was diagnosed with Alopecia. At this time we didn't know a single thing about Alopecia. A family friend recommended I contact the Children's Alopecia Project. At first I was hesitant b/c that would make Alopecia affecting my daughter "real." I wasn't ready yet. After about 6 months I finally put my fears aside and our family attended the CAP summer picnic in Wyomissing. Our entire family grew that day because we made friends with other families in our situation. CAP is a part of our life and without it our entire family would be at a loss with this disease. We love CAP and know you will too!

Children's Alopecia Project is amazing! They're focus is on self-esteem for kids with alopecia and they really know how to make a kid feel good about themselves! My son went from not taking his hat off at all to not wearing a hat and saying he loves his alopecia all because of this group!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing what we do for children living with the incurable autoimmune hairloss disease, Alopecia.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I do. Help me with your comments.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Knowing that we are helping children from around the world with there self-esteem.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the best out there.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Have more events bringing more children from around the world together.

Ways to make it better...

We had more financial support from companies that held self-esteem in high regard.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting more volunteers to help spread the word.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am always optimistic and waiting for that phone call that knocks me off my feet. I am still waiting and my number is still, 610-741-5552.
