WHAT WE DO
Hair that Cares, Inc. is a non-profit organization that grants medical wigs to financially deprived adults and children who suffer from medical related hair loss.
Created from the concept when people look good, they have a tendency to feel good, the founders of Hair that Cares, Inc. realize that patients suffering from hair loss may not be able to afford realistic looking hair alternatives. Some insurance companies do not cover the expense of a quality medical wig.
We help those, but limited to, Chemotherapy Patients, Progeria and Alopecia Areata sufferers who do not have medical insurance, denied cranial prosthesis coverage with Household Income (HHI) under $30k yearly. Partial grant awards are also offered to recipients HHI under $50k yearly.
Hair loss can be a crisis that's hard for many to take. The right wig can make all the difference in the world – boosting self-esteem, even helping the healing process. So with that in mind our mission is to give custom realistic looking medical wigs to those in need to help restore confidence.
