Hasbro, Inc. Please help bring awareness and funding to children with hair loss from Alopecia and/or chemo

    1. Petition by

      Jane Bingham

      Sewell, NJ

It is a cool trend for men to shave their heads bald, especially when they are already starting to go bald but for young boys, it is not the trend. Boys who suffer from hair loss due to Alopecia, Trichotillomania or chemo are often stared at, teased and misunderstood.
We are thrilled that we will see strong figures for young boys to relate to during play that have no hair, like them. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have the new GI Joe action figures in relation to the movie be bald with awareness information on the box and a portion of proceeds go toward finding a cure for Alopecia and/or pediatric cancer?
Hasbro, Inc. Please help spread awareness that boys without hair can grow up to be anything! They are brave and bold, just like GI Joe.

      I myself have had cancer and i know what it was like to lose my hair. I really hope that they do make a bald barbie so young girls know yes it is okay to be bald and still be beautiful.

      My daughter had cancer and lost all of her hair so I think it would be great to have a doll that children could play with that would help them relate to a child that has cancer or has lost their hair due to other reasons.
