2 Girls With Alopecia Share A Heartwarming Friendship After Chance Meeting

Sometimes our trials are the times in life when God gifts us with special friends. In this video, two girls with Alopecia share a heartwarming friendship after a chance meeting.

At the start of this clip, we see a young girl playing lacrosse. She appears perfectly healthy and strong, yet she has no hair on her head. Many people assume that she has cancer, but that is not the case. Carson is only 9 years old and has a rare condition called Alopecia. This is an autoimmune disease that unfortunately causes almost total hair loss.

Even though she is bald now, Carson had hair while growing up as a little girl until she was six years old. Carson authentically shares that she liked to do her hair a lot, but it fell out. Carson was on the Lacrosse field, and suddenly an older girl named Scarlett happened to be on the field who was also bald. Carson asked if she had Alopecia, and she did. The two instantly bonded as the sun was setting on the field in a happy moment.

Scarlett shares how she now goes over to Carson’s house, gets ice cream, and spends time together. She is investing in her and showing great compassion and encouragement, having walked through the same disease. 

They now say that they are best friends. The friendship made such a difference in both of their lives. The clip adorably ends with Carson piggybacking on Scarlett at the field and taking pictures together.

This friendship reminds us of the impact that our stories can have on others. The Lord does not waste our experiences and struggles in life. He uses them for His glory and for the comfort of others. 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
