Find a wig
When you’re facing cancer and the challenges that come with it, it can be difficult to adjust to changes like hair loss. We help women living with cancer find wigs when they lose their hair as a result of cancer treatment.
The Canadian Cancer Society has wig rooms in various community offices across the country and supplies a number of cancer centres. Here, women can browse a selection of wigs, try them on and see if there is a wig that is suitable.
To find a wig room close to you call an information specialist at 1-888-939-3333.
Manitobans experiencing cancer related hair loss can borrow wigs and other head-coverings free of charge through The Guardian Angel Caring Room located at 675 McDermot Ave. All wigs are cleaned and sanitized before being loaned out. Contact Beverley Naleway at 204-787-4180 to arrange an appointment.
