#community-voice Brittany Foxworth Speaker: Brittany Foxworth Date Aired: January 31, 2023 One thing about alopecia areata I wish my friends/co-workers knew is: When I was a child almost 22 years ago I lost all of my hair in the matter of a few days. I felt like a part of me was taken away in those coming days which turned into years. I was once afraid to allow the term Alopecia to roll off my tongue due to the obsessive beauty culture we live in. It took time, support and understanding to realize that hair does not define you. Recognizing that you’re beautiful and brave with Alopecia is redefining social normality’s and its powerful. YOU are POWERFUL.
