Hair is part of our appearance and our persona

Hair also protects our sensitive scalps. And losing our hair can be genuinely traumatic, especially for women.

During chemotherapy an entire head of hair which may be hired by patients for as long as the wig may be needed. A small admin fee of R100 per wig is asked for the upkeep and care of wigs so donations are appreciated. For someone planning to cut off their long tresses, it’s also possible to donate their hair which our wig maker will turn into the perfect answer to hair loss for a cancer patient.

Last year a patient popped in at the CANSA Care Centre in Port Elizabeth to get a wig and had this to say: “Thanks a lot, I really appreciate the new look, you just made my day after a round of chemo. No more beanies and doek for now.”
