Our family was first introduced to Wigs4Kids from our friend, John. He was getting chemo treatments at the Van Elslander Cancer center where he met Ms. Maggie and saw her interaction with the children there. When he died of his cancer his wife Jenifer requested that donations were to Wigs4Kids because she knew how much John thought this charity. When my daughter, Christine suddenly lost 80% of her hair to Alopecia my mother in law suggested we consider John's charity. I made a call and was placed with an appointment that changed Chrisine. Christine, Mom, and her 2 sisters were at the appointment. She was very apprehensive over all that was going on so quickly. Gently Maggie talked to her about her Alopecia and how she was going to get her a wig that will make her feel better about herself. We went home feeling much better about everything. Christine got her wig and her self esteem improved immensly. The center has fun classes,like painting and baking, that are meant to bring the children together to see the common issue of no hair and not even realize that it is therapeutic that they are not " the only one". Christine knows first hand how good her wig makes her feel and on her own did fundraising with her school(spirt week) to provide a wig for another child. This empowered her to know she can make a difference. Thank you Ms Maggie and your organiztion for making a positve difference in my childs life!
