Harrison Goldberg was just 6-years-old when he was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata - an autoimmune disease that attacks the hair follicles - eventually causing hair loss - and in some cases - complete body hair loss. It's a disease often misunderstood and comes with many misconceptions - such as mistaking it for cancer. Harrison is now 8-years-old.
He, along with his parents Robert and Margery are coming in to educate us about the disease and talk about a special fundraiser called "Hair Raising Awareness" taking place this Sunday, June 12th in Massapequa, L.I.
