With your support, we will:

  • Advance research so that, by 2020, there are two treatments approved by the FDA for alopecia areata that are effective, safe, affordable, and easy to use.  (#2in2020)
  • Increase NAAF’s reach so that every child, family or adult who wants a mentor is connected with one and knows they are not alone. We seek to grow our Mentor Program to pair 6,000 community members with a personal mentor by 2020.  (#NotAlone)
  • Drive awareness campaigns so that everyone knows what alopecia areata is and no one suffers from stigma.  (#KnowingAlopecia)

Your gift will go to work right away to support NAAF’s programs of support, advocacy and research. In our eyes, that makes you all heroes. In case you missed the challenge, you can still donate here: https://support.naaf.org/give/165242/#!/donation/checkout
