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.
