No matter where you are or what resources you have available, you can make a difference for women with alopecia in your own community.

Educate Yourself

Did you know that bald or balding women are often asked if they have cancer or if they’re sick? People are well-meaning, but not enough people are educated about alopecia areata. Some doctors even lack the training on how to properly comfort women after diagnosis, and end up disregarding the profound impact it will have on women’s lives.

You can educate yourself, whether you are the one diagnosed or you know a woman with alopecia. Start here.

Spread the Word

You have influence, and you can use it to spread the word about alopecia areata and Bald Girls Do Lunch. From sharing messages on social media to making introductions and beyond, just a few minutes of your time can have a great impact.

Donate to Our Cause

There is still much more work to do for the millions of women with alopecia areata. Not only should they have the latest (and accurate) clinical information but they should have resources that help them feel more confident in their own skin as well as a community so they know they aren’t alone.

100% of your charitable donation will help stop women feeling ashamed and alone. Give your gift today.
