Strands of Strength
Established in 2011 by a cancer survivor, Strands of Strength is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide quality new wigs free of charge to cancer patients in financial need and suffering from hair loss due to treatment.
The wigs offered by Strands of Strength disguise hair loss, decrease feelings of vulnerability and provide greater self -esteem, hopefully resulting in the personal strength needed to successfully battle the disease.
We are here to help
Skin Deep Salon and Spa had the wonderful opportunity to partner with Strands of Strength in June of 2016 and to date we have helped over 384 beautiful clients find the confidence and support they were looking for while dealing with their cancer diagnosis and the side effects.
Prior to this partnership, these clients had to assume the cost of a cranial prosthetic (wig), unfortunately even in today's world, many insurance companies still seek out ways to deny coverage for this service.
Strands of Strength work closely with local hospitals, nurses and doctors to assure that each patient in need can receive a wig.
Strands of Strength financially support all partner salons so woman can receive a FREE consultation and styled wig. Each wig costs approximately $300.00
