Every woman loves “me time.” No one deserves it more than the women fighting breast cancer, going through chemotherapy and the subsequent hair loss. That’s why the Wig Salon exists at Komen OC’s office.
The Wig Salon features a private styling area for women in treatment to try wigs, hats and scarves and to enjoy some personal attention and “me time.”
Linda came to the Wig Salon in July. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001 and had a lumpectomy, chemo, radiation and reconstructive surgery. In February of this year, she was diagnosed with a new primary tumor. She had a bi-lateral mastectomy and is undergoing chemo this summer.
Her session at the Wig Salon was a positive experience. She was able to go home with a wig, plus a gift certificate for styling.
