New story written by teenager with alopecia

29th August 2012

Just Your Average Teenager, Who Happens To Be Bald was written by 15-year-old Olivia Rusk. It is her story, in her own words of living with alopecia . . . why she shed her custom wig and bravely marched into her 3rd grade classroom (when she was only 8-years-old) without hair.

Now, Olivia's message is that "It's Okay To Be Different", anti-bullying and teen suicide prevention. For more information, go to www.oliviascause.org.
