My Daughter Isla who is now 7 has been suffering from Trichotillomania since April 2020.
Trichotillomania, also known as trich, is when someone can't resist the urge to pull out their hair. It can be from: arms, legs but most common areas are from eyelashes, eyebrows and hair from the head.
From first hand I know how the child feels and how low their self esteem can be. So my daughter has came up with this fantastic idea to help other children and to try and help them manage and receive a free gift box from Isla because all she want to do is make others smile.
Our care packages will benefit children who has trichotillomania by providing them gifts to keep their hands busy and books to help feeling better about themselves. Also other bits which Isla has came up with that has helped her.
The funds will be used for providing the gifts for the children, materials and postage.
This GoFundMe page was Isla's idea to make sure others out there can be happy because all she want to do is help others. There are lots of children who suffer trichotillomania and people don't know what to do or how to help and this gift could buy time by preventing more hair loss. Isla and I would be so grateful to help other children in the same shoes as herself. We have spent a lot of money to try and help Isla and keep her hands busy, so this is why we want to share our knowledge and maybe a child from pulling too much hair out.
Feel free to follow Isla's trichotillomania journey here:
