support research to find a cure or acceptable treatment for alopecia areata, to support those with the disease, and to educate the public about alopecia areata.
Imagine waking up one day with your entire head of hair on your pillow. Or losing it slowly so that one day, you're not sure if you have hair or not. Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease affecting over 5 million people that causes partial to full hair loss of the scalp and body. There is no known cure. Due to the fact that much of the public is not aware of this disease, it can have a devastating impact on those affected. NAAF is the only non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure.
