Alopecia is a form of hair loss that occurs in both children and adults, and has many different causes. Alopecia can affect the scalp or the entire body and may cause temporary or permanent damage to the hair follicles. Niomi’s Heart understands that people living with alopecia often experience confusion, sadness, embarrassment, anger, fear, and many other emotions due to the loss of their hair. Our goal is to partner with friends, caregivers and/or parents as they help loved ones cope with hair loss. As families provide emotional and physical support, Niomi’s Heart will provide recipients with wigs to help them overcome emotional challenges and to aid in Fighting “Beautiful and Strong.”
