The Shelly Sachs Wig Room: A Legacy
The namesake of the wig room is the late Shelly Sachs. Beloved by family and friends, her memory now touches the lives of families fighting cancer through the work of Shelly Sachs Foundation. The partnership of non-profit organizations honors her in this beautiful memorial wig room that is available to ALL cancer patients, regardless of diagnosis.
For over 20 years, GYNCA has helped women with GYN cancers, but we understand that hair loss is something that effects every woman with cancer, not just GYN cancers. Thanks to our partnership with the Shelly Sachs Foundation & collaboration with Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks, we are now able to provide wigs for any woman, no matter the cancer type!
Many times, individuals diagnosed with cancer lose their hair during chemotherapy. Wigs can be just one of many expenses that have to take a back seat to medical bills. That's why we and our wonderful partners at Shelly Sachs Foundation and collaborators at Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks work together to ensure that wigs are COMPLETELY FREE to any cancer patient who wishes to have one!
In each of our wig fittings, we provide a wig and the following free of charge:
- Private wig fitting experience for you and your family/friends
- Access to 200+ wigs, to find your perfect new style
- Training and supplies for cleaning and maintaining your wig
- A bag of goodies to pamper yourself with
