Hairdressers with Heart links “Style Heroes” that choose to share the gift of free hairdressing, with cancer patients.
Over a million people will be diagnosed with cancer this year in the United States. Individuals afflicted with cancer that suffer from unappealing hair-loss often find the experience emotionally crippling. Patients that benefit from these services receive more than just hair care, they receive a hero to help guide them through the undeniable changes in their appearance, brought on by cancer treatments that result in hair loss. Each patient enrolled will receive compassionate care starting with the shaving of any remaining hair, if they choose, and then for a year of twelve haircuts while the hair is growing back in.
