Wigs 4 Kids
July 31, 2009
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
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...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
take care of so many more kids like me.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
