Riley’s Hair Recipient Story

January 24, 2017

Recipient Stories – Riley

At just 4 years old, Riley is experiencing hair loss. It’s a difficult thing to go through at any age, but especially when you love long-haired princesses and want to look just like your mommy and friends.

Riley has tons of interests already, like gymnastics, dance, going to the beach and the park and playing with her brothers. She’s in pre-school and she looks up to her teachers as well as her mom and dad. She loves chocolate and flowers.

Riley received her hairpiece from Wigs for Kids in 2016. Having her wig will mean that when she starts school, she won’t have to feel different from the other students, and she can concentrate on learning and growing. She can also be confident during dance and gymnastics that her wig will stay in place, so she can focus on having fun developing her somersaulting skills and dancing like no one is watching.

Wigs for Kids relies on donations to create our custom hairpieces – find out more about making a donation today. And be sure to follow us on Facebook for more news and updates.
