Wouldn’t it be nice if the world automatically empathized with, understood, and supported women experiencing medical hair loss? If you’ve ever contemplated such a wish, did you stop to recall your own awareness of medical hair loss prior to losing your hair? If you’re like me, you knew nothing about medical hair loss, had never thought about it happening to you, and hence could not empathize with others experiencing medical hair loss. If you are like me, you now wish that you could walk out into a world where people understand and are sensitive to your feelings about your medical hair loss. Let’s create the world together. You can contribute to our efforts to raise the consciousness of both the public and our medical professionals and tell the world that “IT IS NOT JUST HAIR!!!” How, you ask. Please take one of our brief surveys exploring individual experiences with medical hair loss. 4Women.com has designed two surveys, one for women who have lost some or all of their hair due to Alopecia (Alopecia Hair Loss Survey) and one for women who have experienced medical hair loss in the context of chemotherapy treatments. (Cancer Hair Loss Survey) Just click on the appropriate link. We will integrate the results of our surveys with research we are conducting into an article addressing the emotional side of medical hair loss. The more responses we get to the surveys, the more effectively we will be able to address the broad spectrum of emotional experiences around medical hair loss. By contributing to our efforts to raise awareness about the emotional consequences of medical hair loss, you will help us to help others experiencing medical hair loss, making the world an easier place to live as a woman with medical hair loss.
