Our Mission: Helping Children Look Themselves & Live Their Lives

 

 

Hair Donation*We have a new hair donation process.*

For over 30 years, Wigs for Kids has been providing Hair Replacement Systems and support for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, burns and other medical issues at no cost to children or their families.The effects of hair loss go deeper than just a change in a child’s outward appearance. Hair loss can erode a child’s self-confidence and limit them from experiencing life the way children should. With an injured self-image, a child’s attitude toward treatment and their physical response to it can be negatively affected also. Wigs for Kids helps children suffering from hair loss look themselves and live their lives.Because we never charge families for hair replacements, we depend on generous people like you that want to help donate hair for cancer and other sources of hair loss. In order to help children who have suffered from hair loss due to complications such as Alopecia in children and other medical issues, a monetary or hair donation is always appreciated.

Financial Donation

Financial donations allow us to create these custom hair pieces at no cost to the family. Funds not only help cover the expense of creating the Hair Replacement System, they also help us pay for products, services, and support. The children we help are treated for different periods of time, depending on each child’s particular circumstances. Some with autoimmune diseases, such as Alopecia, need the help of Wigs for Kids help until they reach age 18, while other children with temporary hair loss due to chemotherapy or radiation therapy may only need treatment for a couple of years.
