Why a Wig Bank is important
For many women, hair loss can be a distressing and visible side-effects of cancer treatment. The Wig Bank is free of charge and helps give women the confidence to cope with their cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Wigs can be borrowed for short-term, for special occasions or for longer periods of time. We can assist with fittings and styling of the wigs. There is no cost to borrow the wig, but there may be a small one off cost to purchase the care pack (shampoo, conditioner, brush) to maintain the wig.
Who is eligible?
The Wig Bank is open to all women residing in Gippsland who have experienced hair loss following chemotherapy.
