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.
