Breastcancer.org & Wigs.com Partnership
Breast Cancer & Treatment
Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth in the breast cells that is a result of mutations or changes in the genes responsible for regulating the growth of cells and keeping them healthy. In order to treat the growth, a variety of treatments can be prescribed. Unfortunately, the treatments prescribed to fight the cancer, such as chemotherapy, radiation, and hormonal drugs, can cause hair loss. Each person’s breast cancer development and treatment is different, so the information provided can be confusing at times. This is why Breastcancer.org was created.
Breastcancer.org was founded by Marisa C. Weiss, M.D in 2000. This non-profit organization is dedicated to providing accurate and up-to-date medical information about breast health and breast cancer. Breastcancer.org strives to help every person and loved one affected by breast cancer by providing the extra information and support if needed. Their support community is highly active and available to all seeking such an environment.
Wigs.com and Breastcancer.org
In 2018, we teamed up with Breastcancer.org with the purpose to help educate their community about wigs as well as fundraise for this organization’s programs. Wigs.com set a goal to raise $100,000 for BreastCancer.org. And, as of 2021, we've reached that goal! We'd like to thank every single one of our clients who has donated. Thank you!
How You Can Support This Non-Profit
Even though Wigs.com has already met our goal, you can still help out this organization. In the Wigs.com shopping cart, you'll see the 95¢ donation option to Breastcancer.org. This small act can make a big difference in the lives of many battling breast cancer. We hope you continue to join us in our efforts!
In honor of breast cancer awareness month, Wigs.com matched all donations to Breastcancer.org received through our website in October 2021. Our goal was to raise $10,000 for this incredible organization! And, we're happy to announce that we met our goal! Thank you to all who donated.
