How your donation helps:

With your hair donation, you  give the gift of beauty, confidence, self-love and hope to someone experiencing hair loss due to illness. When a person goes through cancer treatment, the effects of that treatment can cause hair to fall out. There are few things more debilitating than appearing different from those around them, to have something beyond their control affect them so immensely. They want to feel beautiful just like you! Your hair will contribute toward a human hair wig – the most natural kind – and help restore their confidence and hope.
