Speak out! What do you want Americans to know about women and alopecia?

While taping a lengthy pubic affairs radio interview next month,  (Disney owned station),  Thea’s allocating one of her segments to reading off the comments you send in. The more detailed the better. We know that women want to send the message, ” We’re not sick, it’s alopecia”. What bugs  you? What else do you want the public to understand? Indicate if you want your name mentioned or not.
