Support African American women who are battling and surviving cancer by purchasing wigs for them!!!  The picture displayed is the current wig salon where there is only ONE wig for an African American woman.  Cancer is hard enough and dealing with hair loss from treatment is devastating.  Help these beautiful women regain their confidence again! 

 **Leave the name of your cancer survivor/memorium below if you would like!**
