CAP Kid Group Las Vegas Children’s Alopecia Project – Building Self-Esteem, Providing Support, Raising Awareness
Gianna has had Alopecia since 2009, when she was five years old. Some years we had patches of bald spots, or nothing at all. In December 2014, Gianna lost all of her hair. In January 28th, 2015, in front of 700 school kids and parents, Gianna decided to take off her hat and grab the microphone to say “I have Alopecia and Bald is Beautiful.” That was the day we created the CAP Kid Group Las Vegas. We are going to give support for children and families dealing with alopecia. We promote alopecia awareness and want educate about this autoimmune condition. See the very inspiring text from Rob Schneider the day Gianna took off her hat. Also see who are all helping us spread the word: Tony Orlando, Bill and his daughter McKenna Medley. Comedians Jim Breuer, Jay Mohr, Last Comic Standing winner of season 1, Dat Phan. Magician Rick Thomas, and many more people. You don’t have Alopecia to join the fun. Thank you for the support, see you soon.

What is Alopecia?
Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that is not life threatening, but is life altering. It is not contagious. You can’t catch it and it does not hurt. It is almost like your body is allergic to hair, which causes it to fall out. Alopecia Areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. It usually starts with one or more small, round, smooth patches. This disease affects approximately 2% of the population overall, including more than 5 million people in the United States alone.
