"Each time I went out in public there were stares and whispers, people asking my parents how my treatments were going, wanting to pray for me, or just generally assuming that I was undergoing chemotherapy."
"As a child, the stereotypes hurt and the attention on my head became a source of anxiety for me."
Molly Tuttle Hair Loss : Her Top Goal For Sharing Her Story
I think she is quite brave to share her story of female hair loss being how she is in the public eye.
Yet Molly wants to see more acceptance for children and adults who have alopecia and she declares that starts with educating people so we can understand what it is and not to put limiting stereotypes on anyone regardless of gender, race or age.
She is quoted as saying: "Many of us mean well and don’t realize when we’re using hurtful stereotypes and creating stigma. I think that as a society we can start to heal by educating ourselves and listening to each other’s stories. I hope that by sharing mine I can make the world a better place for the bald kids of the future."
