Children's Alopecia Project Thanksgiving Potluck

On Saturday, we had the pleasure of hosting the first Children's Alopecia Project (CAP) Thanksgiving potluck for the Virginia/Maryland chapter. CAP is a wonderful organization that raises awareness and provides support for kids with alopecia, an incurable autoimmune disease that causes hair loss. Our son, Camden, who is turning 4 in January, started losing his hair at 19 months. Especially during this time of year, we feel so grateful that he is a sweet, happy, and healthy little boy.

The "Tree of Thanks" idea came from Paula at Frog Prince Paperie, who also designed all of the printables.

The delicious spread included honey baked ham, rotisserie chicken, wheat rolls, and pasta salad. Katie, the chapter's founder, brought over homemade apple pie, mini cheese cakes, and cupcakes. It was so nice just to sit down and share a meal with everyone. We hope to make it a tradition every year.

Special thanks to Rebecca Watkins Photography for capturing the event, and Geoff at Brick Wall Printing and Graphics.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  4. My son was recently diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. He will be 4 in April. I stumbled across your blog when googling for transformer bday parties. We are totally 'new' to hair loss and are currently trying to treat it. I'd love to chat about alopecia if you have any advice or words of wisdom.
