I was a ten year old boy when I found out I had cancer. Life threatening? Scary? Life altering? Yes to all above. People stared, children pointed, it was hard to go outside my home knowing how ugly I was. Then I met Maggie. I knew that she could do nothing for me, but I humored my mom and dad and went to her shop. She sat me down and told me how brave I was and that she could help me to feel good about myself again. No way, I thought. WOW was I wrong! She fitted me for a wig, and in no time I had a real human hair wig. I brought pictures in and she cut and styled the wig, then turned me to face the mirror. It was the me I was inside. I could go out and I looked like everyone else. I wasn't ugly, I had worth. (Which my mom and dad had told me all along.) She showed my how to care for my wig. I wore that wig for nearly a year, every day, and well, THANKYOU WIGS 4 KIDS for helping me though the toughest time of my life! Love, Joshua Courter

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way Maggie and her staff treat you like one of their own.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I walked out of WIGS feeling normal.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

take care of so many more kids like me.

My daughter Rachel was devastated when she lost all her hair. She was 12 years old and soon to become a teenager with many other emotional battles to fight as well. I had a great deal of difficulty finding ANYONE to help me and I called every salon in the Detroit area. When I found out about Maggie and Wigs 4 Kids, my search was over. Maggie was able to arrange for Rachel to have a custom Wig made just for Rachel. She also instructed Rachel on how to put the wig on, how to care for her wig, and she styled the wig exactly the way Rachel wanted it. We were fortunate enough to find out about Wigs 4 Kids last year BEFORE their annual fundraising Gala. This Gala was a real treat for Rachel and all the rest of my family. Maggie and her staff do a wonderful job putting this on and all of us had a great time. We are very thankful to be included in all the events put on by them. Rachel attended the Christmas party with her brother and was able to meet other children and she could at last not feel that she was DIFFERENT. My family and I applaud this wonderful organization for all their selfless work!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting my daughter a beautiful wig from someone who is experienced in the selection and maintenance of the wig. I would not have been able to do this for my daughter without Maggie's help.

Wigs 4 Kids and Maggie are the best. There is no other way to put how important they were to my 6 year old daughter when she was diagnosed with cancer. The wig they provided Haley was so important to her recovery and self esteem as she was going through her cancer treatment. The first day we met Maggie, Haley thought she was going to get a wig that day, she was very disturbed with loosing her hair. Well when Haley got very upset about this Maggie was able to get her a beautiful wig the nest day. Haley wore that wig everyday, without it there would have been no way that Haley would have gone to school or possibly even out of the house. I cannot say enough about the important role that Wigs 4 Kids played in the recovery of my daughter as she fought her battle against cancer.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

How they treated my daughter and family wth so much love and respect. They preserved my daughters self esteem at a very stressful time in her life.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not change a thing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Meeting all the wonderful people associated with this group.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help all the kids that are in need, and ensure that all kids in the future are helped in the same way that my daughter was.

Ways to make it better...

I never had to meet these wonderful people, because that would mean my daughter never got cancer.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Time to help all the families in need, space to continue the wonderful work, and money to continue to help all the kids get the wigs that are so important.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Thank you to Wigs 4 Kids.
