Wigs 4 Kids
June 7, 2011

I found out about Wigs 4 Kids after researching organizations on the Internet that help children deal emotionally and physically with their hair loss. This organization was most appropriate for my daughter. My daughter, age 7 was diagnosed with Leukemia on June 4, 2010. I contacted Wigs 4 Kids as she began to lose her hair. We attended our appointment and the staff gave us a tour and we reviewed the books and brief stories of all the children they helped thus far. The before and after pictures was proof that Wigs 4 Kids has made a life long impact on the lives of many children with various medical conditions that resulted in hair loss. Mrs. Maggie Varney personally made us feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process. When I saw the precious and heartfelt smile on my daughter's face, it was truly priceless.

The Great!

The way my child admires herself. She still sees a beautiful little girl who did not let cancer make her feel or look like she lost the battle.

Ways to make it better...

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

Continue to keep the smiles on the faces of children that need these services to enhance their personal and social lives and self esteem. Go Wigs For Kids!
