Alopecia areata is a common autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss of hair on the scalp and elsewhere on the body. It usually starts with one or more small, round, smooth patches on the scalp and can progress to total scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis) or complete body hair loss (alopecia universalis).
Alopecia areata affects approximately two percent of the population overall, including more than 5 million people in the United States alone. This common skin disease is highly unpredictable and cyclical. Hair can grow back in or fall out again at any time, and the disease course is different for each person.
Here are links to some of the amazing organizations that support us Alopecians:

The National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF)

It's easy! You can simply contact us, and we will get you all the information right away for obtaining a Public Performance License.
We need to make you aware of all of the below legal stuff and ask that you read it as well. It sounds kind of serious, but we promise it’s very straightforward.
Suppose you invite a few friends over to watch a movie or a TV show that’s no longer available on TV. You buy or rent a DVD or Blue-ray disc from the corner store or a digital video file from an online store and show the film or TV episode in your home that night. Have you violated copyright law by illegally “publicly performing” the movie or show? Of course not.
But suppose you took the same movie or TV episode and showed it to patrons at a club or bar that you happen to manage. In that case, you have infringed the copyright in the video work. Simply put, movies or TV shows obtained through a brick-and-mortar or online store are licensed for your private use; they are not licensed for exhibition to the public.
The concept of “public performance” is central to copyright. If filmmakers, authors, playwrights, musicians, and game designers do not retain ownership of their works, then there is little incentive for them to continue creating high-quality works in the future, and there is little incentive for others to finance the creation of those works.
The Federal Copyright Act (Title 17 of the U.S. Code) governs how copyrighted materials, such as movies, may be used. Neither the rental nor the purchase of a copy of a copyrighted work carries with it the right to publicly exhibit the work. No additional license is required to privately view a movie or other copyrighted work with a few friends and family or, in certain narrowly defined face-to-face teaching activities. However, bars, restaurants, private clubs, prisons, lodges, factories, summer camps, public libraries, daycare facilities, parks and recreation departments, churches, and non-classroom use at schools and universities are all examples of situations where a public performance license must be obtained. This legal requirement applies regardless of whether an admission fee is charged, whether the institution or organization is commercial or non-profit, or whether a federal or state agency is involved.
“Willful” infringement of these rules concerning public performances for commercial or financial gain is a federal crime carrying a maximum sentence of up to five years in jail and/or a $250,000 fine. Even inadvertent infringement is subject to substantial civil damages.
Obtaining a public performance license is easy and usually requires no more than simply contacting us! We are more than happy to supply you with a quote for your screening, depending on the number of times you plan on showing the film, the size of your venue/group, whether or not it will be a ticketed event and if there is a fund raising component to your screening. Most licensing fees are based on a particular performance or set of performances for specified films.
Thank you so much for your support and interest, and we cannot wait to share this story with you! xox
