Free Wigs (and More!) for Cancer Patients
Hair loss is one of the most difficult aspects of treatment for many cancer patients. Wigs, hats, and scarves offer a solution but unfortunately insurance usually doesn’t cover this expense. Nonprofit organizations like the ones below understand this and want to help. From wigs to scarves and hats there are many choices available to suit individual preferences and needs and all are available at zero cost to cancer patients.
Cancer treatment is so very hard in so many ways and the added burden of hair loss just compounds an incredibly difficult situation. The generous programs listed below provide everything from free head scarves to caps to free wigs for cancer patients who have experienced hair loss due to cancer treatments.
