Hi etaglieber

Have you tried your local American Cancer Society. They gave me free wigs, scarves etc.
They also have a feel good look better program where they give you free makeup, lotions etc. They even show you how to use it. It is a very nice kit well worth the trip.

Take care and keep us posted.

Hi Etag,

I agree you need to contact the American Cancer Society they usually have several donated wigs on hand for cancer victims along with scarfs and hats. They also gave me a certificate for $75.00 to aid in the purchase of a wig or hat through a catalog they have available.

There is also a website www.heavenlyhats.com where you can fill out a brief form requesting hats and they will send you 3 or 4 new hats. The ones I received were very nice, all are new.

I hope this has been helpful. Sending you my best!
