The Wig Exchange

The gift of hair–from women who’ve been there.

For many women, hair loss is the most troublesome side effect of chemotherapy. A nice wig can ease that concern, but well-made wigs are expensive and may not be covered by insurance. Meanwhile, women who’ve finished their cancer treatments are often unsure as to what to do with their barely-used wigs. That’s why we created The Wig Exchange™.

In Fall 2014, The Wig Exchange San Francisco Bay Area launched after overwhelming response to the first exchange, based in New York! The Wig Exchange is a partner organization of Soul Ryeders & Friends.

Wig donations have been received from cancer survivors from over 30 states. Currently, we serve clients throughout the Bay Area, though we have sent wigs to other states and even other countries! In 2015, The Wig Exchange intends to expand its coverage as resources permit.

To find out more about our program you can also listen to the founders of The Wig Exchange in a recent interview from Frankly Speaking About Cancer on VoiceAmerica, an internet-based radio program.
