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
Mission: CAP will help any child in need who is living with hair loss due to all forms of Alopecia."We raise awareness of Alopecia and the self-esteem in children so the become stronger teens and productive adults.
Results: We have helped thousands of children, friends, family and others associated with alopecia with awareness! We continue to grow self-esteem because we can't grow hair but next up is our biggest challenge yet! We are now in need of more funds so we can accomplish a CAP Kid Group that is registered and active in each State. We are also looking to have the first comprehensive feasibility study of how children and parents deal with this incurable autoimmune hair loss disease. We need to find another $200,000 to be able to do these things while continuing our mission for the kids!

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!
