My friends little girl has alopecia, she is looking into getting a very comfortable shaitel to wear everyday, unfortunately she has no hair left.
I’m so sorry to hear that. Refuah sheleimah to the little girl. What is her name so we can daven for her?
Oy, poor kid. Refuah shelaima to her.
Contact Chai Lifeline. They may be able to help.
There are several gemachs. Chai Lifeline is a great place to start.
There’s also Locks of Love, which specializes in hair pieces for children with alopeica.
Hair Club for Kids is a not-for-profit branch of HairClub that offers FREE services to children who suffer from medical hair loss.
You could also try going to diniwigs.com, she has done wigs for children as well.
Try Zichron Menachem, an Israeli-based organization similar to Locks of Love. I have donated hair to them in the past and plan to again at some point.
As far as Refu’ah Sheleimah wishes, the entirety of this disease is that it kills of the hair follicles. It does not hurt, or cause discomfort. There are no other effects, and no known cure.
Hashem certainly has a cure and requesting a refuah from Him is certainly beneficial.
B”H there is no affect on body or something hope fully they’ll come up with a cure keep daveing to Hashem
Certainly; I am not CHV”SH suggesting otherwise. I did want to avoid any confusion as to the severity of the disease. While not minimizing the embarrassment felt by its victims, alopecia is often confused with radiation treatments, which of course signify something far worse, which sometimes leads to the ASSUMPTER being embarrassed! (And yes, I am aware that I just made up a word.)
