Tracey Scone Wig Library Update
Arrow’s Tracey Scone Wig Library was established in 2000 and has helped hundreds of patients who have suffered hair loss due to chemotherapy. The loan of a wig has provided patients with a much needed boost to their confidence and self esteem.
As with many programs this year, the Tracey Scone Wig Library was impacted by COVID-19. With the need for additional hygiene and safety measures we chose to reinvest the way we deliver the wig service, partnering with wig supplier, The Individual Wig at Darlinghurst.
The team at The Individual Wig has kindly looked after our patients, helping to fit and supply them with a brand new wig. Thanks to the financial support of Tour de Cure we have gifted over 50 new wigs to cancer patients since COVID-19 helping patients to feel as much of their normal self as possible during treatment.
Our sincere thanks to the Tour de Cure fundraising team which held its Spring lunch in November. Despite the challenges faced during COVID-19 with social distancing requirements, the team delivered an exceptional fundraising event raising an amazing $1,000,000. We thank them very much for their long term support of the Tracey Scone Wig Library and also give thanks to The Individual Wig for their help during COVID-19 ensuring we kept this important service going.
