It's a Bald and Beautiful World

DETROIT, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Millions of people around the world have had their lives turned upside down by severe and unexpected hair loss.

This drastic change in their physical appearance was caused by various forms of a noncontagious disease generally known as alopecia, which presently can be treated but not cured.

Many of them have never met or spoken with someone else with the same condition and have kept their condition a secret for fear of being ridiculed or rejected.

So, imagine the joy of meeting scores of people from all over the world who are not only coping with such hair loss, but also living life to the fullest regardless of it.

These are the kind of people you will find on, a unique and free social networking site for everyone who is living with baldness, thinning or patchy loss of hair, or any other type of hair loss.

They have formed one of the best alopecia support groups online, and you can always count on one of its members to tell why.

"I have spent many months with feelings of despair," wrote a member named Susan, "and I have met so many wonderful, strong, beautiful people on here that it has made me realize that my life is so far from over. I needed this."

This richly diverse group inhabits a truly amazing online world, where its members meet day and night to encourage one another and share information about the best resources for bald and alopecic men, women, and children.

"They are coming from sites like MySpace to create their own space in Alopecia World because ours is a beloved community formed around their specific needs as hair loss 'sufferers,'" said co-founder Cheryl Carvery, who has been living with alopecia areata for 17 years.

Each member of Alopecia World gets a customizable profile with privacy options and may post blogs, photos, videos, events and announcements, participate in informative and inspiring discussions, or create different groups of their own.

"It is a fantastic site," stated Angel Jackman, an alopecia support group leader from Australia. "This is far superior to anything I could have done."

Alopecia World really is a special place, especially since it is positively life-changing.
