Thursday, May 18, 2017
CLEVELAND –  University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center celebrated the grand opening of their newest patient service, a free nail and wig salon called Le Salon on Thursday, May 18.  Wigs will be provided at the salon through the American Cancer Society Free Wig Salon program. The American Cancer Society provides this free community resource to help cancer patients manage the impact of cancer on their lives. The goal of the program is to provide a quality new wig free of charge in a safe comfortable environment.
 
“UH Seidman Cancer Center is a wonderful partner and we are pleased to be able to work together to help patients with some of the appearance related side effects of cancer treatment. Losing your hair due to treatment can be so devastating and we are happy to be able to ease this burden,” said Sarah Wells, executive director of the American Cancer Society.
 
The American Cancer Society can provide a human hair or synthetic hair wig, based on the woman’s preferences. In partnership with Pantene, the Society has provided more than 42,000 real-hair wigs to women coping with hair loss due to cancer.
