The parents of Jahzara Montemayor are trying to raise enough money to get her to Childrens Mercy Hospital in Kansas City to see a specialist

Hi, my name is Nicole Cowles. My 3 old daughter, Jahzara, suffers from Alopecia Areata. Its an immune disorder in which her blood cells think her hair is a disease so they're attacking and killing it.
> It started off around the age of 1, we noticed small circular patches. Took her to two different doctors who both said she was pulling out her hair. More and more patches began forming, we continued taking her to doctors and were told the same thing over and over, she's pulling out her hair. Then about a year ago Dr. Shull a pediatric doctor here in our hometown of Garden City, Kansas gave us the diagnosis we had been waiting on for so long.... Alopecia Areata. He then refered her to a dermatologist in Liberal, Kansas. He prescribed her oral steroids and topical steroid cream to be applied to her scalp, which didn't work. Hair continued to fall out and we seen no regrowth. Then we tried steriod injections into her scalp every 3 months, that didn't work either. We have now been referred to a pediatric dermatologist at childrens mercy hopsital in kansas city. But due to all the medical bills and trips we are in debt. We talked to this guy from salvation army and he said you might be able to financially help us with the trip. Her appointment is March 5th at 9:15 am. We will have to go up the night before because her appointment is so early. If there is anything you could financially do to help with the trip it would be greatly appreciated. Our daughter is almost completely bald.
> God Bless You!
