CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
Find a wig
We are delighted to announce that our wig lending service is returning on August 17, 2020. We know how valuable this program is in helping someone with cancer regain a sense of self and build resilience.
- To request or return a wig, please call our Cancer Information Helpline at 1-888-939-3333.
- An information specialist will discuss your requirements and preferences, do their best to find a match, and arrange delivery. They can also help you return a wig.
- All staff and volunteers have been trained in enhanced cleaning and hygiene to make sure wigs are delivered in their cleanest state.
- We have also worked with public health officials to make sure the delivery process meets current health and safety requirements and takes all necessary steps to prevent possible COVID-19 exposure.
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.
