Regional Wig Service gives Victorians confidence

Wig Service People living in regional areas who have lost their hair through cancer treatment can now access our free postal Wig Service thanks to your generous donations.

Many people find that a well-fitted wig gives them more self-confidence during cancer treatment. However it’s difficult for people to travel to Melbourne when they are unwell to get a wig fitted, so now we’re taking our wigs to them.

One person who understands fist-hand how beneficial the service can be is Richard, who requested a wig for his wife Valerie (pictured right).

“She is extremely pleased with her choice,” he said. “It came right before we were about to go out for lunch and it was great for her morale!”

To confirm your eligibility please call our nurses on 13 11 20, fill out a form to select your style and colour and an appropriate wig will be sent out within seven days. Those going through treatment can also request a beanie, headscarf and sleep cap.
