Jeff founded CAP in 2004 when his daughter Maddie, then in kindergarten, was diagnosed with alopecia. A lack of support for children with alopecia as well as an outpouring of support from his local community fueled his decision to want to help children with alopecia.
I see firsthand how CAP helps my daughter and other children living with alopecia. It has been our purpose since the start and will be moving forward into the future. Roles change but the mission stays the same!
