Dealing with the variety of challenges of cancer treatment can be difficult. Losing your hair can feel like a just another one of those hurdles to overcome.
But the good news is that we can help!
We have many wigs available in our wig room located at the Cancer Center. We will be happy to assist you in making a selection and ensuring a good fit. You can decide to a try a whole new look or try to resemble what your hair looked like before cancer treatment. Exact matches may not be possible but our consultant will be sure to find you something that will satisfy your needs.
For more information and to make an appointment for a consultation, please call Beth Slifer at (860) 358-2058. Hats are also available. Monday through Friday 8a.m. to 4p.m.
