September is the month-long commemoration of Alopecia Areata awareness worldwide. Leading this year’s celebration in the country is Alopecia Philippines, a group founded by singer and songwriter Abby Asistio in 2012. She has been championing the cause of empowering citizens who have this condition.
What is Alopecia areata?
Alopecia areata is a condition when hair loss occurs due to faults in the immune system. These “faults” attach the hair follicles, which then results in partial or total loss of hair on the head and other parts of the body.
Abby is no stranger to alopecia, having been diagnosed with alopecia areata since she was four years old. Abby’s decision to come out in public with her condition was a major turning point in her life.
On September 2012, Abby decided to start an online campaign in time with Alopecia Awareness Month by inviting family and friends to pose with the double “A” (inverted “V”) sign using their fingers on the photo sharing site, Instagram. It quickly caught on and Abby was overwhelmed by the response from netizens, with over a thousand photo contributions to date.
This paved the way for the beginnings of the group, Alopecia Philippines. It aims to raise awareness about alopecia and correct common misconceptions and perceptions about it, provide encouragement to people afflicted with it, as well as to create an online support community for them.
Inspired by Abby’s honesty and courage, many people, men and women, kids and teens from different walks of life began sharing their own stories and struggles living with alopecia. What started out as a group of ten has now more than 300 members. Its Facebook page – Alopecia Areata Awareness, as followers from all over the world.
