Testimonials

“I was quite surprised at how much time you took with me, my daughter and daughter-in-law. I tried on a number of wigs before deciding on a wig that was close to my own color and style.”

“I was surprised when I found out there was no charge for the wig. What a wonderful feeling to know this program is in place for those of us with cancer. Thank you for a wonderful experience!”
