    I read that Jacob has alopecia. My son (8 years old) was diagnosed with alopecia last year and has lost all of his hair. As parents,my wife and I, researched as much as we could and reached out to groups of parents asking the same questions we were. If there was a way to point Jacob to ChildrensAlopeciaProject.org and see all the great ways they help kids who struggle with this disease it would help a lot. Everyone likes to be represented and kids like to someone like them do great things. I think Jacob could be that person for these kids and show them that you can accomplish big things and not let this disease stop you.
