Providing resources for hair replacement options to cancer patients.
The Image Enhancement Program provides patients experiencing hair loss due to their cancer treatment with hair replacement options.
The Program offers one wig, free of charge, to active patients of the Windsor Regional Cancer Program who do not have extended health insurance coverage.
A variety of new hats, scarves and turbans are also available to all patients, regardless of insurance status, without limit.
The Cancer Centre Foundation has partnered with Jackie Pizzuti, owner of Wigs To Wellness & The Mastectomy Boutique, to assist patients in finding the perfect wig and ensuring they feel at ease in a private, cozy and professional setting. Jackie has been a licensed hair stylist for over twenty-five years; and owned and operated a salon in Michigan for 10 years before returning to Windsor.
Jackie has assembled over 40 styles in the Wigs To Wellness salon, and will custom order a style and colour and then fit the wig to each individual’s needs.
If a patient is unable to travel to the Wigs To Wellness salon, an appointment at their home can also be arranged.
*The Mastectomy Boutique offers Post Surgical Healing Kits to provide comfort and confidence after breast surgery. The kit includes a cotton front closure leisure bra, Velcro drainage pouch and a soft feather light puff form. Jackie donates $20 from every kit purchased to the Foundation.
By appointment only.
