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, Inc.
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!
