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!

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

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.
