Leanne Flavell

Organisation Founder

Name, Age and Location:

Hi there, my name is Leanne Flavell, I am 33 years old and I live in Cornwall


I have been part of Alopecia Awareness since February 2005. Since then I have worked with Ryan and the rest of our team to help promote the support group and provide the help and information that is much needed by fellow alopecia sufferers. I contribute to the organisation by arranging fund raising events that help produce the materials needed to get the information to people such as newsletters, leaflets and posters and even the website.

Alopecia Sufferer?

Yes, I started noticing some hair loss in Aug 2004. This gradually progressed to what has so far been my worst attack of Alopecia during which I lost just over 75% of my hair. I have lost my eyebrows, lashes and all other body hair! Except can you believe it my female moustache and one hairy leg! bizarre I know, (and maybe even too much information) but hey, I am unique!!! I have been a wig wearer for a few years now and I have to say, as much as I would like my own hair I am having great fun! Being blonde one day and red the next has its advantages!

Real Job:

I am currently a stay-at-home mum to my new little baby girl.

Hobbies & Interests:

OK I can't actually remember what it was I used to do before Alopecia Awareness! My active involvement keeps my spare time very minimal but when I am not working, on the phone or being a mum, I enjoy eating out and relaxing with friends and family.


I have two children age 11 and 15, we live together in a big mansioin by the sea with Robbie Williams (in my dreams!)


We have six gold fish, one hamster and two children!!

Other Comments:

As an Alopecia sufferer, I know the kind of help that I needed when I started losing my hair and unfortunately this just was not available. I can speak for many Alopecia sufferers when I say that there does not seem to be much help out there that is easy to access. However, working alongside these lovely people and trying to provide the support network needed, I personally hope nobody feels the way I did at the time!


Feel free to contact me anytime via our online form or look up my alternative contact details using our contact section.

It may look exactly the same but a lot of work has gone into upgrading the Alopecia Awareness website to make it more adaptable and manageable so that we can keep you up to date with the latest information.
