Bald, Bold, and Confident

by Mack Rosenberg

The Childrens Alopecia Project, or CAP, was created in 2004 by Jeff Woytovich. His daughter Madison contracted the hair loss disease a year earlier while her mother was unbraiding her hair after a wedding.

Alopecia is an auto-immune disease that involves hair follicles being mistakenly attacked resulting in almost complete hair loss for most victims. The disease has affected approximately 4 million Americans.
