Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

Host your way this May or June to support cancer research

Thank you for our headscarves

Monday 29 April, 2019

“These scarves are much needed elsewhere and will get a lot more use than sitting in my wardrobe. I lost my mum to cancer and know how support services like yours can change lives”

There are not enough words to thank everyone who generously donated over 1000 headscarves in beautiful condition for our Wig Service. From an initial Facebook post in December 2018, we had packages arriving right through to March 2019.

The activity on the Facebook posts showed groups coordinating drop/offs like the Indonesian Muslim Community of Victoria who organised a collection of 6 boxes of head scarfs (pictured).

Each donation had a story to tell through generous supporters, businesses and people who have had a cancer experience and want to help others. Some used the opportunity to donate in memory of someone they had lost. Thank you to all.

Wig Service

Our Wig Service is free, private and personalised for people affected by cancer-related hair loss. We offer an extensive range of synthetic wigs along with headscarves, beanies and cotton caps. A friendly cancer nurse will help you choose a flattering wig, fit it correctly and give you advice on wig maintenance and care. You're very welcome to bring someone to your appointment for extra support. We also offer a free postal wig service if you live in regional Victoria and are unable to visit us at St Kilda Road, Melbourne.

To find out more or to make an appointment, call 13 11 20 or email askanurse@cancervic.org.au.
