Providing free wigs for patients at Leeds Cancer Support

Thanks to your donations, Leeds Cares will now be funding free wigs for patients who use the hair loss service at Leeds Cancer Support.

The service offers practical and emotional support for people experiencing hair loss due to cancer treatments.

Previously, clients would have to pay prescription charges for their wigs, which is around £74. This has meant some patients don’t take up the offer of wearing a wig, even though we know they would like to.

The funding enables Leeds Cancer Support to open up the service to every patient, regardless of their ability to pay.
