Shhhh... is a Surprise Party for two Special Clients God has touched my heart to be a blessing to Melissa Reyna and Sarah Taylor . Melissa's first visit to My Trendy Place was early last year with her family searching for a wig. She recently came back to us again and wanted a secure hair piece so that she would not have to go to school with no hair. Unfortunately Melissa has been bullied because of her condition with Alopecia and needs our help, will you partner with us? Here is a clip of the letter she sent us. Dear Ms. Lisa, Alopecia Areata is a chronic illness in your nervous system, which makes all your hair completely fall off. Yes that means everything, no eyebrows, no lashes, not even the unwanted hair like under arm hair or on my legs. Sometimes I feel like an average girl: Melissa Reyna ,12 yrs old ,going to Hartman Middle School ,but then I wake up and I look in the mirror and I'm not have no hair. This started long ago when I was like 5 yrs old my mom started noticing bald spots, so we went to the doctor. They told my mom that it was just the beginning, and it was. As time passed my hair fell out more and more every day until I was completely bald. When I was younger the kids at school would be very mean to me. They would tell me I had cancer and that I was going to die. Nobody wanted to sit by me because they didn't what me to make them sick. I would always be sad and come home crying but my mom helped me understand that I was ok and that I wasn't going to die. Now I'm a bit older and I understand more but it would me the world to me if I could have my hair back. Sarah is 10 years old and has Alopecia for a few years and has become used to wearing wigs, hats and scarves but sometimes prefers to wear nothing at all. What a Trooper! Sarah is such a sweet young girl that does exceptionally well in school and has a great spirit, she deserves a something special. My Trendy Place has decided to make Melissa and Sarah feel EXTRA SPECIAL by throwing them a Surprise Makeover Party on Saturday, Aug 11th from 11am-1pm.
