As hair loss is a potential side effect of some treatments, we have gathered a list of wig resources in the area. Wigs may be discounted or reimbursed through some insurance companies with proper documentation from your oncologist (i.e. prescriptions for a Cranial Prosthesis). Please get prior authorization from your insurance provider first. You can find TLC catalogs with wig information in our lobbies. Visit www.ebeauty.com for information on obtaining a free wig. The American Cancer Society (1-800-227-2345) has additional wig resources available as well.
