Earlier this year, Salt Lake City-based mom Daniella Vinanti Wride was startled to discover that her happy and seemingly healthy 7-year-old daughter Ginessa was losing her hair. Though she would eventually be diagnosed with alopecia. It is an autoimmune skin disease that results in all-over hair loss. The 7-year-old did not let it ruin her school’s celebration of Crazy Hair Day.

Vinanti Wride first realized her daughter’s hair was falling out one night as she was brushing her long locks. “On Jan. 1 she took a shower and I helped her brush her hair,” Vinanti Wride explained to Buzzfeed. “It was half way down her back. I found a quarter-sized bald patch on the back of her head, and the area around her temples looked like it was thinning as well.” She booked an appointment to see the dermatologist, but within only a couple of weeks, her hair was completely gone.
