Nothing but support for families. CAP makes sense out of a disease that makes none. It's about the children, not their hair.

I am the founder, so I am bias. Please visit www.childrensalopeciaproject.org and see if you think we try to help build self-esteem, provide support and raise awareness. Thank you and take care. Founder, Jeff Woytovich Children's Alopecia Project, Inc.

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.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

When my daughter began losing her hair, she felt alone and did not know anyone like her. Children's Alopecia Project has changed her life and my life, too! She met other kids that were just like her and knew what she was feeling and I met other parents that knew what I was going through. My daughter is self confident and CAP played a huge role in that. I will forever be thankful for Jeff and his mission to encourage and help all kids facing the challenges, physically and emotionally, with hair loss. It's our CAP, we all wear it.

CAP is all about the children with alopecia not the alopecia in a child. They focus on self-esteem and confidence and not treatments and cures. They try to let kids know that everyone is different and that is normal!

Children's Alopecia project helped my daughter see she was not alone and the only little girl like her. She struggled with bullies and the groups at one of the summer activities helped her to learn to cope. She was given this opportunity free because of the love and hard work put in to making these camps free for the kids with alopecia.

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.

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!
