Alopecia Camp for Riley

      Through GoFundMe, I am trying to raise money for my little sister Riley so she can spend a well deserved week at Miracle camp in Michigan.

      Riley was diagnosed with alopecia when she was just 10 months old. Luckily, at that time, she only lost a little hair and it grew back fairly quick. However, her disease did not stay dormant and has progressed rapidly over the last few months.  Riley is nine years old now, and the alopecia has caused her to lose almost all of her hair. The last few weeks have been especially trying. Riley is trying to cope as a young girl who is nearly bald, and sometimes kids at school are just not that understanding. Things have been rather difficult in the past few weeks for her. 

      Riley does not know any other children with alopecia and she has trouble understanding why she is the only kid that she knows who has this disease. This is why we are looking to send her this summer to Miracle camp, a camp for children with alopecia.  It would be a wonderful opportunity for her to meet other children who are going through similar experiences as her, and hopefully make lifelong friends!!

     The camp is located in Michigan, and we are looking for any

assistance, no matter how small, to help send Riley to this wonderful and supportive Camp.  I believe it will benefit her greatly in so many ways!
