WHAT EXACTLY IS ALOPECIA AREATA?


Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease affecting over 5 million children, teens and adults that causes partial to full hair loss of the scalp and body. There is no known cure.

 

The goal of our event is to increase public awareness and raise money for direct research projects through the National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF) so that one day, there will be a cure.

 

NAAF MISSION

The mission of the NAAF is to 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. NAAF is a private, tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization pursuant to section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.


WHERE CAN I GET HELP?


The National Alopecia Areata Foundation (www.naaf.org) was founded in 1981 when a young Californian with the disease looked for others to share and understand her problems. It has grown into the world center of alopecia areata information, research, and service.

 

Located in San Rafael, California, the Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and has a professional Chief Executive Officer and Staff.  The Foundation is represented in Washington, D.C., and the Chief Executive Office and others have testified before Congressional Committees.
