Alopecia Awareness with Gabriel Carter

Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that causes the immune system to attack your hair follicles triggering the hairs to fall out. Approximately 6.8 million people in the United States and 147 million worldwide have or will develop alopecia areata at some point in their lives according to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation.

On his blog, Cheltenham Ave, Gabriel Carter discusses what it’s like learning self-love and how to live well with the stress of a changing appearance. In this episode we discuss many of those same topics and learn Gabriel's definition of masculinity.
