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!
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.
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!
