Each year, too many people are diagnosed with cancer. Battling this disease means dealing with harsh side effects, such as hair-loss and other debilitating consequences that greatly affect them and their families.
Since 2005, the CanDonate Hair Program has been helping to restore confidence and self-image of children residing in Quebec, who suffer from cancer, by donating free natural hair wigs.
Unfortunately the costs for these hair prosthetics are too often impossible for children and their parents with cancer to cover on their own. The CanDonate Hair Program provides a much needed resource for young cancer patients struggling with a very difficult challenge. For over 10 years, the Foundation has given hundreds of free wigs to children with cancer through its various partnerships.
Now in its 10th year, the CanDonate Hair Program wants to expand its efforts to help also women and men suffering from cancer across the province of Québec. To realize this goal, the Foundation is organizing an event called “A Part of Me”.
The “A Part of Me Gala” will feature 10 women and children who have been selected to get a full makeover (natural hair wigs made from recent hair donations, clothing, spa treatments as well as other beneficial products provided by our various sponsors). We will be following them to portray the physical and psychosocial effects that cancer has on their person. We will be showcasing their journey at the Gala, by video presentation. The CanDonate Hair Foundation will aim to raise awareness and funds to strengthen the support we offer to children and aim to helping adults, residing in Québec, who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy. By coming to our Gala, you will contribute to helping this worthy cause.
PLEASE, BE A PART OF THIS INCREDIBLE JOURNEY!
