My son had never seen another bald child like himself until we took him to CAP's annual camp Alopeciapalooza. I know it made an impact on him as he now understands he's not alone. These camps offer age appropriate sessions with panels for both children and parents to learn and ask questions. The focus is primarily on self confidence and non medical coping strategies. It's a way for families across the country to connect both locally and nationally and the experience has been life changing. The founder, Jeff Woytovich, is amazing and has ensured that all children with alopecia attend camps for free. He is a blessing to all of our children and we will continue to support CAP in every way possible!
Both of my twin boys have alopecia. They felt alone, different, and lost. Thanks to Children's Alopecia Project we were able to meet so many wonderful families. It has helped both of my boys be more confident and greatly helped their self esteem.
Jeff, the founder of CAP has been the first to introduce me to other individual who have aloepcia and live regular normal lives. He is a real special man, with a real special family, who run a real special organization!!!!
It's a safe place where they only care about self-esteem and how the family is handling everything. Very great!!
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.
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.
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 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.
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!
