I now have the confidence to feel 'normal' again and no different from others. It gave me a massive boost, especially at such a low time in my life.
One of the worst things about chemo can be losing your hair. The Hair 4 U project has been set up with kind support from award winner hairdresser Charlie Miller and Teenage Cancer Trust to ensure that every young person with cancer has the opportunity to choose a real hair wig.
The wig is free for all young people aged 13-24 and we work with some of the UK’s top salons and leading hairdressers to make sure that the wig feels real, looks fabulous and can be styled just how you want.
There are both male and female wig styles available and a large number of high end salons are involved in the project nationwide.
Please ask your nurse or Youth Support Coordinator to refer you to Hair 4 U or contact us if you would like to be referred for a real hair wig.
