Wig Bank Opens at the Medical Park
Thanks to an $850 donation from Angel's Hair Salon in Lima, the
Women's Health Center at Lima Memorial has opened a free wig bank
for patients going through any kind of medical treatment that may
result in the loss of their hair.
"Coping with hair loss is just one of the many difficult aspects
of treatment that patients must deal with. Our goal with the
YOUnique Boutique is to provide patients with a free wig and wig
fitting support in a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere," explained
Joy Brown, director of Lima Memorial Women's Health Center and
Radiology and Imaging Center.
Through the YOUnique Wig Boutique patients can schedule an
individual consultation for a wig fitting, pick out the style that
best suits them and work with a volunteer learn how to take care of
their new wig. The Wig Bank is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The YOUnique Wig Boutique offers wigs in a wide variety of styles
and hair colors, and any patient is welcome to come in for a
consultation. "We have all different styles and colors ranging from
blond to gray and short cuts to long, wavy-haired wigs," Brown
said. "Patients can choose to keep the wigs or donate them back
once they no longer need them."
The YOUnique Wig Boutique is being supported by the American
Cancer Society and the beauty programs at Apollo Career Center and
the Ohio State Beauty Academy.
The Boutique also welcomes donations of gently used wigs. Patients
