The Scarring Alopecia Foundation (SAF), formerly known as CARF, is a non-profit rare disease organization that provides funds for research to find effective treatments and a cure for scarring alopecia, a diverse group of rare disorders in which the hair follicle is destroyed and replaced with scar tissue. The result is permanent hair loss. Cicatricial alopecia occurs in otherwise healthy men and women of all ages and is seen worldwide. SAF, in addition to providing funds to research, supports education and advocacy and works to raise public awareness.
