Help make free, real hair wigs for cancer patients who have lost their own hair during cancer treatment
If you have what it takes to make, “The Cut,” Autumn Voss and Barb Vahle want to talk to you.
The Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing faculty members are organizing “The Cut,” to help the Pantene Beautiful Lengths project make free, real hair wigs for cancer patients who have lost their own hair during cancer treatment.
Anyone with at least eight inches of healthy hair who is willing to have it cut and donated to the cause is welcome to join Voss, Vahle and others from Blessing-Rieman who are participating. Hair must not be bleached, dyed or have been chemically-treated.
“We are doing this in honor of our mothers who had cancer,” said Voss, MSN, RN, instructor.
“And to give back to the community,” added Vahle, MSN, RN, assistant professor. “To pay it forward.”
Studio 835 owner Nancy Maggliochetti is donating her services. The Cut will take place at Maggliochetti’s studio, 835 Kentucky, Quincy, on April 4. Anyone interested in participating must contact Voss or Vahle by the end of the day Monday, April 1. Voss can be reached by email at email@example.com, or 217-228-5520, ext. 6988; or Vahle at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 217-228-5520, ext. 6912.
Those participating will need to be able to go to Studio 835 during the day on April 4 to have their hair cut and anyone participating will receive a coupon for a free cut and style.
The Pantene Beautiful Lengths program has donated 24,000 free, real-hair wigs to the American Cancer Society’s wig banks.
