WA Wig Library Wig and Turban Supplies
Aim/objective: To provide practical support to those with hair loss due to cancer treatment and to reduce the associated emotional toll, and to supply high quality wigs and turbans to South West regional cancer patients who are experiencing distressing hair loss as a result of their treatment.
The Wig Library operates on a voluntary basis and loans wigs, turbans, hats and scarves at no cost and for as long as required during and after cancer treatment. Fully trained volunteers are available to assist with the selection, fitting and management of the Wig Library and the service is accessible from anywhere in the South West region.
