Nothing I found gave us any hope, until we were directed to a Kinesiologist (a Hollistic, Herbal treatment doctor), Dr. Lanny Lipson. He is amazing! Maddi's hair loss haulted, and new hair grew in... even darker than before! We had to stop her treatments due to the financial strain of having no medical insurance, but we know what her triggers are now, and we avoid them.Maddi has new hair growth still, her eyebrows are back!Since she isn't completely bald, but still has a strange hair growth pattern, she was embarrased and self concious in school and in public.Then we learned about Wigs 4 Kids, a non-profit organization here in Michigan that provides free wigs and services to kids 18 and under.What an amazing team they have there! Miss Maggie is an angel, and their staff is wonderful!Wigs 4 Kids operates SOLELY on donations, and they are always looking for individuals and organizations to Adopt-A-Kid! PLEASE PASS THIS VIDEO, AND IT'S IMPORTANT MESSAGE ON TO ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CO-WORKERS, ETC. ALOPECIA CAN STRIKE ANYONE AT ANYTIME. IF IT WERE SOMEONE YOU LOVED, YOU'D SPREAD THE WORD. --- http://www.baldtruthtalk.com/vbtube_show.php?do=tube&tubeid=61&t=335
