“You are absolutely a Godsend! I was so desperate to find someone who could provide a wig for my sister. Luckily, my daughter found your charity on the internet. You certainly steered us in the right direction! Jean walked out of the salon with the perfect wig that made her feel good about herself again. She asked to go to see friends. No one could tell it was a wig! What a wonderful day! She even put on lipstick at dinner.”

-Vivian, Shadyside

“Thank you, thank you, and thank you a million times over. I am so grateful for your donation for my new “do”. One of the hardest things about this is losing my hair. It’s not about being vain; it’s more of a constant reminder that I’m sick. I might not be feeling sick one day but one look in the mirror and cancer is staring back at me! So thank you for helping me cope with my most difficult part along my journey with cancer. I feel like the luckiest person alive right now because of the help you have provided to me.”

-Kami, South Hills

I accompanied a friend of mine, diagnosed with ovarian cancer, to your Hair Peace Women’s Circle. I found it to be a very powerful group of strength, care, concern, friendship and spirituality. I am grateful for the help you have given to my dear friend.”

-Ruth, Pittsburgh

“Being single and trying to make ends meet, the gift for the wig has lifted a large burden. Thank you too for the information. I feel like I have some control again over cancer. I have 2 children and a grandson I want to be here to see grow old. Thank you!”

-Sherry, Penn Hills

“When I got word I would lose my hair I was devastated and thought “not my beautiful hair”. One of the wonderful nurses told me about Hair Peace Charities. Thanks to you I was able to get a great looking wig that everyone thinks is my own hair. Without Hair Peace, it would be one more unpleasant experience to remind me I have cancer. Thank you for your compassion.”

-Sandi, Gibsonia

“A special note to let you know how much I appreciate what you have done for me. I could not see my hairbrush for so much hair coming out. Once I got the wig you helped me to buy, I was a new person. It made me feel pretty again so I could go out in confidence.”

-Esther, Cranberry Township

“Thank you for the books that provided so much information, the prayers and mediation book was of great comfort. I also especially enjoyed the notes of prayer, well wishing and concern from people I did not even know who took time to send thoughtful cards. These expressions of kindness helped me to realize I was not alone.”

-Helen, Scott Township

“Before I had cancer, I never knew about Hair Peace Charities but now it is close to my heart. My girlfriends had a party for me when I finished treatments. They collected donations and told me to give it to a charity and yours came to mind first. I want to pay it forward so more women will be blessed with your kindness. I know, because I was one of them.”
