FREE High Quality Wigs for Female Cancer Patients

Cancer patients say that hair loss is one of the most emotionally devastating side effects of chemotherapy.  To help maintain a positive body image & sense of normalcy, many cancer patients opt to wear a wig.  However, some insurance companies won’t cover the cost of a wig, and the ones that do typically don’t provide enough funds to make purchasing a good quality wig an option.

Check out Lolly’s Locks… they provide high-quality wigs (made from human hair) to female cancer patients who cannot otherwise afford them.

 

Here’s the dealio (as my daughter always says)

To apply for a FREE wig, fill out an application (click HERE).  All applications must be submitted with proof of medical diagnosis.  Applications are approved on a case by case basis.

To qualify for a wig from Lolly’s Locks:

  • You must be a female cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy, and suffering from hair loss as a result of treatments.
  • Patients can be diagnosed with any type of cancer but must be over the age of 18 years old.
  • You must reside in the USA.

Once approved, you can actually order the wig from the privacy of your own home.  A detailed order form (how you want the wig parted; straight hair, curly, medium wave, etc; hair length; % of hair highlighted; measurements for cap size; etc) will be emailed to you.  You will also have a follow-up phone conversation with Lolly’s Locks wig distributor as well as a wig stylist.  Once these conversations are completed, you should receive your wig in two weeks.

      If you still have the free wigs, I would love to have them. I am cancer patient and went through radiation treatments 8 months apart, then with medication, have lost almost all of my long hair (I have 1 inch left and it is falling out). I am at a loss of getting any help.

      Thank you. Please email me

    I have read the information regarding Lolly’s Locks, but in their website it only mentions free wigs for chemo patients. I have had two (2) rounds of radiation within 8 months. My long hair came out in handfuls! Do you know of someone that can help me get a wig? Thank you

      Hi Nell, I have several suggestions:
      1. Connect with Lolly’s Locks and explain your situation. If they can’t help you, they may be able to refer you to another organization that can provide assistance.
      2. The American Cancer Society (ACS) has teamed with the Entertainment Industry Foundation to distribute free wigs to women across the country. Call the ACS at 1-877-227-1596 to see if they have a wig bank in your area.
      3. Check out Ruth’s Free Wig Closet at 218.927.2128.
      4. Lastly, depending on where you live, there are other organizations that may be able to provide assistance. For instance, if you live in Arizona, check out Wig Out Program.
      I hope this helps! Sending you much love & light as your continue through your treatments. xo Robyn
