Me Again Founder
Deborah Alfa is a hair stylist and scalp specialist of over 16 years experience.
Deborah has a fundamental passion for education and although she was already a qualified hair stylist, she completed a teaching degree. She then began working with young adults in Wirral schools teaching life skills and managing confidence building workshops. After developing a passion for wellbeing through her work, she went on to facilitate corporate workshops to educate company management and employees about stress management.
Her career path then changed again when Deborah unexpectedly fell in love with her current business premises and became a hair salon owner. Her experience of working with cancer patients prompted her to specialise in scalp therapy and wig personalization.
Her desire to provide specialist help and support to cancer patients was strengthened after sadly losing close family to cancer and hearing of trauma that many of her clients experienced during and after active treatment.
Deborah was awarded ‘Best Start Up Social Enterprise ‘ by Wirral Borough Council in 2017 for her concept of ‘Me Again’ CIC was officially launched in April 2018.
Deborah is delighted that her concept has been realised and that she can help women in this way. She is looking forward to developing Me Again CIC further to address the great need for such provision in her local community.
Stella is a highly experienced Business Development Manager and Compliance Consultant having worked in the legal and finance sector for over 20 years.
In 2016 Stella was diagnosed with breast cancer, an event that forced her to re-evaluate her life and her priorities. Improving the patient experience became her passion, so she decided to utilise her professional skills for the benefit of Wirral Breast Centre where she received such excellent care throughout her treatment. She started working voluntarily with the Centre to improve the patient experience by sourcing and supplying much needed facilities such as a quiet room for patient counselling and also organising events to raise much needed funds for the hospital charity.
She is also a patient representative for Breast Cancer Now and a Patient Design Advocate, having participated in a collaboration research project regarding Sexuality after Breast Cancer with participation in an international conference for health workers involved in breast cancer care.
Stella is a Director of Me Again CIC. She is looking forward to drawing on her own personal journey, extensive experience and skills to help cancer patients ultimately become ‘Me Again’.
