Too Hot for Wigs: Bald Women Go Natural in Nevada
Date:8/5/2008

. Unable to grow or sustain hair on their scalps -- and sometimes even brows and eyelashes -- people with alopecia areata are actually in good health.

Alopecia areata affects men, women and children of all ages -- approximately 5 million people in the U.S. Characterized by smooth, round bald patches, it can progress to complete hair loss that includes all body hair. Some treatments work for some people, but there is no cure. Alopecia areata is highly unpredictable, may have a genetic predisposition and can appear at any time of life.

Bald Girls Do Lunch, a 501c3 public charity, was founded by Thea Chassin in New York. Her degree in physical therapy from Columbia University brings both scientific and humanistic skills to her work with women. She saw that women crave fun and stimulating chats over coffee or lunch to share information. She credits the uplifting, women-only format for conquering feelings of aloneness.

For more information about the dinner event, Bald Girls Do Lunch(R) and the autoimmune disease alopecia areata visit http://www.baldgirlsdolunch.org.
