Wigs For Hope At 30% Of Goal

Dear Tri-City Community, For those fighting cancer, wigs are more than just hair; they provide a sense of normalcy and consistency during cancer treatment and gives some privacy by preventing people from asking questions about their diagnosis. Through the Wigs for Hope program, Tri-City Medical Center has been providing free custom wigs to women undergoing chemotherapy. Unfortunately, as many resources have been impacted, our Wigs for Hope program has suffered a loss of funding.
Thanks to your generosity, we’ve raised 30% of our fundraising goal of $8,500. Help us get to 50% by sharing this email or challenging friends to match your donation! Click here to donate on Facebook and share why you’re supporting Wigs For Hope.
We need your support and contributions to continue providing this service for our community. With your donation, we can help more people like Maria Ochoa.
For Maria Ochoa, the Wigs For Hope program at Tri-City Medical Center helped her feel like herself again.
“Before the diagnosis, my hair was a part of my identity and the idea of losing ALL of it was comparable to losing a limb,” said Maria. “I had the kind of hair where I was often asked if it was real. I felt blessed to have such beautiful, long and thick hair.”
“But I kept hearing, Don’t worry, it will grow back. For all the well-intended sentiment it held, that phrase was the most upsetting to hear.”
“My hairdresser and I cried at my last trim at his salon.”

“Only my nurse navigator at Tri-City Women’s Center, Renee Ebejer, understood what I needed as a person, not just a patient. Renee gave a voice to my personal loss,” said Maria. “Renee worked tirelessly to find a wig that was identical to my hair.”

“When my dear friend joined me to try on the wig for the first time, I saw in her face, when Renee placed the wig on my head, that I was restored. This was the Maria she knew. I was still here.”

“Through this whole experience, I’ve learned how to be patient with myself and others. That I can survive no hair. That I define who I am, and that everything is temporary. But the confidence and joy from all of this began with Renee and the Wigs For Hope Program at Tri-City. I am forever grateful for the program and for Renee’s determination,” said Maria.
