As we continue our Resource Series, I am so excited to welcome, Paula & Rosie Quinn Founders of Coming Up Rosies.

Paula and Rosie Quinn are the founders of Coming Up Rosies, a nonprofit dedicated to fulfilling Rosie’s dream to make bald kids like her smile confidently.

At 2 years old, Rosie was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis, an incurable autoimmune disease that results in baldness. From a young age, Rosie taught her parents how to embrace her difference by coming up with magical adventures of her hair each night before bed.

Despite Rosie’s confidence, awkward questions and comments about her baldness started to bother Rosie. One day, her parents surprised her with a head scarf made from one of her paintings. Rosie immediately felt confident again, and wanted to share this feeling of pride with all bald children.

Rosie lives in Chicago, with her sister Caroline, her parents Paula and Larry, and their bernedoodle, Enzo. As a family, they love to go to Cubs games, have dance parties, and cook Italian dinners at home.

Listen in as Paula & Rosie share all about their New Book 📚 My Hair Went on Vacation and how Coming Up Rosies, their nonprofit is continuing to fulfill Rosie’s dream to make bald kids like her smile confidently.
