Bald Girls Do Lunch – What a Great Idea

by Y on August 31, 2007

Bald Girls Do LunchI recently read about this organization called “Bald Girls Do Lunch” after reading an article in the Desert News. Bald Girls Do Lunch is founded by Thea Chassin who has had alopecia universalis since 1997. Chassin lives in New York and for the past five years has been a support group leader for alopecia areata. She deals with women, men and children of all ages. From the beginning, Bald Girls Do Lunch was created as a non profit organization that was devoting all its resources to the emotional and practical needs of women with alopecia areata.

Their website states:

Bald Girls Do Lunch supports women with alopecia areata — an auto-immune skin condition which causes the partial or total loss of hair on the scalp, brows, lashes and body. We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of women living with the challenges of this condition.

How do we help? We recognize that too many women are feeling very alone with this condition. We bring them together for small and intimate lunches where they can discuss with each other whatever’s on their minds.

• We hold workshops with wig makers to understand wig types , how they are made and which ones suit our lifestyles

• We hold classes with a master make-up artist

• We provide tips and guidance for learning how and when to discuss this condition with family, lovers and friends

This is such an amazing concept and organization. They have the following upcoming lunch locations

Pasadena, CA – Septemeber 9, 2007
New York Special Event – October 7, 2007
Scottsdale, AZ – October 13, 2007

More information can be found on their website
