It's always a great experience working with a cancer patient who comes to the Kentucky CancerLink office to find a wig.
The process of losing hair due to cancer treatment is not an easy one, but hopefully we make the process of finding a wig easier.
Here is a picture of love and support that a daughter has for her mother as she finds a "new look."
Our Patient Services Room also provides hats (pictured here), scarves, post-mastectomy supplies, such as bras, prostheses and camis. We also carry a stock of lymphedema garments. All of these items are provided at no-cost to the client. Many are not covered by insurance and it's just one of the ways that we work to reduce the barrier of cost and hopefully stress as well.
Thank you to Barrett & Co. School of Hair Design in Nicholasville for partnering with us in our wig program. Wigs that are donated are sent to Barrett & Co for cleaning and refurbishing, re-bagged with instructions for care and returned to KCL.
