She knew that she was beautiful inside and out

Senior year of high school can be difficult for any kid. You’re starting to think about entering a new chapter in your life full of possibilities and responsibilities. You’re worrying about whether you should go to college or if you should start a career. While these thoughts can be all-consuming, most high school students don’t have to deal with the added stress of losing their hair.

Madisyn Babcock’s life changed when her hair started falling out early in 2017. The 17-year-old high school senior learned that she suffered from alopecia — an auto-immune disease that causes patches of hair to fall out. She lost all of her hair within a matter of months.

Madisyn needed to take her high school senior pictures, and she came up with a great plan to show that she wouldn’t let some hair loss get in the way of her life.
