    Post Unpredictable hair loss causes problems for all ages

    Latina Sethman-Benthall has no hair. By age 12, after several years of patchy hair loss, her diagnosis of alopecia universalis, an autoimmune disease that affects 5 million Americans — men, women and children — left her completely bald.

    She has had her struggles with self-esteem and depression and she still feels self-conscious. However, now 40, married, and with her youngest child a college sophomore, she has decided the time has come to reach out and help others. She also wants to raise public awareness of the condition, for which there is currently no cure or effective treatment.
