Are You Going Through Chemotherapy And Would Like A Wig?


Once upon a time, I had cancer. And after almost three years of being misdiagnosed, and careful consideration, I had both chemotherapy and radiation treatments.


My specific cocktail of chemotherapy drugs made me lose my hair. And so one of the options for handling this aesthetic change, was to purchase a wig to wear. Having fully expected to wear my wig all the time, I found out very quickly that I personally, was more comfortable going bald, or with a bandana. However having a wig on hand was very comforting to me, and I believe everyone should have the same opportunity!


Wigs come in all shapes and styles, and costs! And while they don’t all fit the same, some are adjustable. The one I purchased was adjustable, and similar to my long hair at the time. I paid $190 CAN for mine, which I was told was a pretty average cost for a synthetic wig.


I wore my wig a handful of times, brushed it a couple of times with the special wig brush, and I stored it in the same box it came in. And I have held on to that wig for years waiting for when someone came forward that needed it. Alas having just spoken to someone going through cancer without much financial support or any benefits, I am reminded that I should just put the word out, as there is someone out there that probably could really use this wig!


So if you or someone you know is going through chemotherapy treatments and has lost their hair, or will eventually lose their hair due to their treatments, please reach out to them and let them know that I have a long brown haired wig available to someone that needs it. Please (the person that requires the wig) email me at tricianickl@hotmail.com . And should I happen to have several people come forward, I will pull a name out of a hat.
