患有脫髮症的諾維奇學生與團隊一起剃頭

一名被診斷出患有脫髮症的學生說,在她的大學體育隊成員舉行了一次剃頭籌款活動後,她 "情緒激動"。尼娜-哈頓-佩金斯在諾維奇的東安格利亞大學(UEA)學習生物學時患上了這種自身免疫性疾病。這位20歲的女孩來自德比郡的貝爾珀,是大學攀岩俱樂部的主席,並得到了俱樂部成員的支持。"她說:"我沒有意識到人們會有多大的關心。

哈頓-佩金斯女士患有脫髮症,這種疾病導致免疫系統的細胞聚集在毛囊周圍並攻擊它們,阻止毛囊產生更多的頭髮。她說。"當我第一次開始發現我頭上的禿斑時,我驚慌失措,淚流滿面地去看全科醫生。"她說,她的媽媽從貝爾珀開車到諾里奇來接她,她 "在家裡花了一個星期不斷地哭"。"她說:"這真的很糟糕,但我的父母站在我身邊,給予我支持。

10月底,哈頓-佩金斯女士和UEA攀岩俱樂部成員為慈善機構英國脫髮症協會舉辦了一次剃頭籌款活動。她說。"我以為只有一個成員會和我一起做,但後來發現還有七個成員加入,而且越來越多的人參與其中。"這對我來說真的很激動。"由於社會的壓力和美容標準,失去頭髮對一個女人來說是一件大事。"人們如此真誠地意識到這一點並給予支持,並說這並不重要,這真是太好了。"自從我把頭髮剃掉後,我也感覺快樂多了"。剃頭活動為該慈善機構籌集了1050英鎊。她說她現在將專注於她的學習。她說:"我不能讓我生活中的這種變化影響我的學位結果,"她說。


A student who was diagnosed with alopecia said she was "emotional" after members of her university sports team held a head-shaving fundraiser. Nina Hatton-Perkins developed the autoimmune condition while studying biology at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich. The 20-year-old, from Belper in Derbyshire, is president of the university's climbing club and was supported by it members. "I didn't realise how much people would care," she said.

Ms Hatton-Perkins has Alopecia Areata, external which causes cells from the immune system to gather around hair follicles and attack them, stopping the follicles from producing more hair. She said: "When I first started finding bald spots on my head, I had a panic attack and went to the GP in floods of tears." She said her my mum drove from Belper to come and collect her from Norwich and she "spent a week at home crying constantly". "It was really bad, but my parents stood by me and were supportive," she said.

At the end of October Ms Hatton-Perkins and the UEA Climbing club members ran a head-shaving fundraiser for the charity Alopecia UK. She said: "I thought that only one of the other members was going do it with me, but then it turned out seven other members joined, and more and more people got involved with it as it was happening. "It was really emotional for me. "Losing your hair is such a big thing for a woman to have to go through because of society’s pressures and beauty standards. "For people to be so genuinely aware of that and supportive, and say it doesn't matter, was great. "I feel so much happier as well since I've shaved my hair off." The head shaving event raised £1,050 for the charity. She said she would now focus on her studies. "I can't let this change in my life affect how my degree turns out," she said.
