A few weeks ago I was out on Women With Soul business doing interviews at a Winter Market. There I met Alice who was was selling her awesome ceramic pots. I was obviously drawn to Alice as I could see she had Alopecia. Alice is special because once I realised which school she attended I knew it was she who caused my son Tre to accept my condition. Unbeknown to me at the time he was bullied at school because of my bald head and wanted me to wear a wig.
Alice bravely shaved her hair off and shared the photographs with her friends explaining what alopecia was and why she had to do it. Tre came home that day hugged me and said ‘Mum its okay. I understand now’
I shared this story with Alice and want to thank her with all my heart for her bravery at such a young age. You are amazing, beautiful and a testimony to young women.
