Tracey Scone Wig Library
Hair loss can be one of the most emotionally distressing side effects of chemotherapy, a treatment that affects all cells in the body including hair follicle cells. Like cancer cells, hair follicle cells multiply quickly and chemotherapy drugs have difficulty discerning the difference. Patients experiencing hair loss through chemotherapy, can borrow a wig from Arrow's Tracey Scone Wig Library. This patient support service is available for all cancer patients from any hospital and is completely free of charge.
The Library has a large variety of colours, lengths and styles for patients to choose from, and wigs can be borrowed for the duration of treatment or until your hair grows back.
For further information or to make an appointment please call Arrow on 02 8382 2698 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
