We first went to Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan because my girls wanted to donate their hair. My 22 year old daughter, has donated 2 times, my 13 year old daughter donated once and recently 20 year old son donated his hair. The staff at Wigs 4 Kids of MI. Is friendly, upbeat, easy to talk to and professional. They treat each individual with kindness, love and confidentiality. My youngest child has not only been a donor but also an ambassor. She has used Wigs 4 Kids of MI services for her own personal issue. The services allow her to not feel alone, give confidence and also taught her empathy. My daughter's issues have been resolved for now, hopefully permanently. She now has been giving back by volunteering her time at Wigs 4 Kids of MI. She is currently the Wigs 4 Kids of MI princess and Youth Volunteer of the Year. The services have taught her to love more and to be kind always. Our family is grateful to Wigs 4 Kids of MI for all they do for all of the Michigan children.
