Methodist Hospital Cancer Resource and Positive Resource Center Offer Patients Free, No-Cost Wigs
The Methodist Hospital Cancer Resource and Positive Appearance Center is proud to partner with EBeauty Community, which offers a national wig exchange program where women can donate wigs they no longer need to others who are undergoing cancer treatments. Hair is an integral part of a woman’s life and for women undergoing chemotherapy, the loss of their hair can add another layer of emotional strain and impact self-image during an already traumatic time. Wigs are expensive (generally costing from $700 to $5,000) and many women, especially those struggling to cover health care bills, cannot afford the cost of a quality wig. Methodist Hospital believes every woman experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy should have access to a wig. Through their partnership with eBeauty, they provide free wig fittings and wigs to any woman undergoing cancer treatment, regardless of where they live or were treated. Methodist aims to meet immediate needs while fostering a cycle of giving, receiving, hope and healing.
