Our primary mission is to provide women undergoing chemotherapy with high quality wigs and practical tips for managing the issues surrounding cancer-related hair loss. Of equal importance is the caring and confidential environment we offer newly diagnosed women, where they can connect with one of our experienced coordinators, a cancer survivor herself, who provides valuable information, personal insight and can refer women to a variety of local resources and support.

The Wig Exchange – San Francisco Bay Area
In the Fall of 2014, The Wig Exchange San Francisco Bay Area was launched. We are very honored to be able to serve the women of the San Francisco Bay Area!
Since its launch The Wig Exchange SF Bay Area has received over 900 wigs and we have begun partnering with local cancer organizations to get our wigs to women in need. We serve women throughout California and the SF Bay Area. Please call us to set up an appointment or reserve a wig online through our Wig Salon. We are excited to continue to partner with many organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Wig Exchange was officially launched in December 2011, by Sandy Samberg, Kate and Paul Conn through funds donated by Tompkins Financial Advisors of White Plains, NY.
