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

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.

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!
