Share a Wig (SW)
Project PINK BLUE is on a journey to change the way Africans think about cancer.
Hair is constantly growing, with old hairs falling out and being replaced by new ones. Treatment of cancer sometimes involves the use of strong medicines. This form of treatment can make people lose some or all of their hair, most often in clumps during shampooing or brushing. This kind of side effect of cancer treatment could make the patient, especially women begin to feel bad about themselves- which is completely normal. Encouragingly, sometimes and for some persons, the hair may grow back; conversely for others, the hair loss could stay permanent.
It is premised on this common side effect of cancer treatment that Project PINK BLUE launched the Share-A-Wig campaign. The campaign was established to pool wigs of different styles and sizes from donations of kind-hearted people throughout a calendar year, which would be distributed to cancer ‘Champions’ every December.
