Canadian Cancer Society Wig Bags

The Canadian Cancer Society has donated surplus t-shirts from past events to be used to create wig bags.  The finished bags will be used as a free patient service in the Wig Salon. Patients will be able to use these bags to carry out their new wigs.

Cancer patients face many physical challenges, some due to the treatment they are enduring.  By contributing your time and talents you are joining the fight and providing support to cancer patients.
