“…You really made my day. I wasn't feeling good at all. You know as women we go through hell with our bodies, but to lose our hair is one of the worst experiences ever!…”
I've been keeping you in the loop about how my Mom has been doing with her cancer treatment… lately we've had a few things come up that needed some attention.
About a month ago my Moms Oncologist decided to change her treatment to something a little different. This particular medicine has caused her hair to thin considerably.
I'm in the process of working on a partial Lace Wig for her as we speak.
In the meantime she has been wearing some store bought pieces.
Last night, the kids and I jumped in the truck and took a 5 hour drive to my Moms house so I could be with her for two important appointments.
At the first one I got to chat with her Oncologist, but while sitting in the waiting area I noticed a little area with wigs, scarves, and hats for cancer patients.
I didn't get a chance to really look in depth or talk to anyone, so I made a mental note to talk with someone when I came back.
We left the first appointment, ate and headed for appointment #2 at a much bigger Cancer Center.
On our way out of the second Cancer Center we noticed a much larger area where they had wigs, hats, scarves and different little things that would be beneficial to a cancer patient with thin hair or no hair at all.
The place almost brought tears to my eyes. There were all kinds of wigs, different styles, shapes and colors.
Some had beautiful scarves draped over the top that reminded me of Marilyn Monroe with a more modern feel.
My Mom seemed to be in Heaven! She was immediately drawn to a short layered bob with just a pop of bold color.
She tried it on and it was perfect!
After the lady explained to my Mom everything she was getting was free of charge, my Mom said to her…
“You should talk to my daughter, she teaches people how to make wigs for cancer patients all over the world.”
The lady and I talked for about 15 minutes straight.
At that moment I decided to make a few partial Lace Wigs to donate, but I realized those wouldn't be nearly enough for the amount of patients they have that are in need of these awesome services!
In the mean time, if you would like to learn how to make wigs for cancer patients, or for anyone suffering from hair loss my Lace Wig Mastery Training Seminar is coming up on Feb 8-9 2014.
There’s 1 spot left and you see see the details here:
Here’s what would be great…
If you have any gently wigs you’d like to donate all you have to do is wash them, dry them and mail them to:
Lace Wig Training Center
P.O. Box 2250
Summerville, SC 29484
I’m going to donate any wigs I get to the Cancer Center as long as they look good.
Together we can help change the lives of these amazing women together one wig at a time!
Take care and be blessed!
