Beautiful hair for Alaina Rose

The little girl you see below is my 6 year old niece Alaina. As you can see from the photo above, she had gorgeous long brown hair.

She was recently diagnosed with a rare disease called Alopecia. Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that results in hair loss. Alopecia normally affects people of all ages, but she is only 6. She has stage 3 Alopecia which means that her hair has a chance of never growing back again. She is starting to look at everyone's hair and making comments on how pretty the hair looks and we are starting to think that having no hair is giving her a complex. At the tiny age of just 6, I cannot imagine how hard it must be for her to try and understand why this is happening to her.

This fundraiser is to try and raise money for a couple of human hair wigs to fit Alaina's tiny head. The wigs are extremely expensive and are not covered by insurance. At this time, my sister is a single mommy working six days a week just to make ends meet and cannot afford to purchase a wig for her beautiful daughter. We are asking for your help please! Any donation amount will help. If you can spare $5 to help give Alaina Rose beautiful hair again, we would greatly appreicate it, more importantly Alaina will appreciate it. Thank you so much!
