When my daughter lost her hair at 8yo, so also lost her confidence and happiness. She got bullied and she was devastated and we were heartbroken for her. Ever since we got involved with CAP, things changed for the better. CAP is definitely life changing & even life saving. CAP is supportive, uplifting, accepting & totally awesome beyond words!

CAP is a wonderful organization that helps children with any form of Alopecia. It allows these children to meet others that have the same incurable condition, which causes them to lose their hair. The focus is to help the children grow self-esteem and to spread awareness. To see these kids interact with each other is just amazing!

This is an organisation that is what all organisations should aspire to....its about the kids. Building lifelong friendships, self esteem, and a level of confidence someone with our without Alopecia of any brand would want to achieve. It has done wonders for our son, who i turn, instills confidence around the world, with a condition he is not afraid of or worries about, but loves and owns.

Childrens Alopecia Project is an amazing, life changing, self esteem boosting, loving organization! I lost all my hair at the age of two and started volunteering with CAP 6 years ago and it's been the best 6 years to be able to meet, learn from, grow with and be apart of the family! I've never felt as accepted and loved in my entire life until I joined CAP! I'm thankful everyday for this organization, the people it's blessed me with as well as all the opportunities! CAP truly is life changing and I can't say enough about all of the great work and events it does!
