Donate Hair to Cancer?

Hi,

Is there anywhere near Zurich where you can donate your hair to Cancer wigs / patients? I need a haircut and my hair is very long so if I can, I would prefer to donate it.

Please PM me with details.

Thanks,
Angelica

Re: Donate Hair to Cancer?

I found this link.

If you follow all the correct instructions, I'm sure you can post it to the US...

Re: Donate Hair to Cancer?

I read that the Swiss League against Cancer has a list of Wig makers. Perhaps you could email them ?

Here is another organization that is based in the US. Again, similar to the Pantene organizaton I think that if you follow the instructions they will take your donation. A great cause!

Thank you
According to this, synthetic hair is easier to care and most desired from what I understand

Re: Donate Hair to Cancer?

It says wigs made of synthetic hair of good quality and are hardly discernable from real hair. They are lght-weight and comfortable to wear, easier to care for and less expensive than real hair.

It does not say that wigs made of real hair are less desirable.

Re: Donate Hair to Cancer?

I donít know of any resources here, but make sure the organization you donate to doesnít then turn around and charge patients for the hair.

I had a synthetic wig 7 years ago when I had chemo. It was easy to care for, nice style and might well have been easier to manage than real hair. Certainly it never got static. At Swiss prices (nearly 1300 chf), luckily IV paid for it. It now lives on somewhere in Eastern Europe (i donated it).
