Tracey Scone Wig Library

 

Hair loss can be one of the most emotionally distressing side effects of chemotherapy. That’s why Arrow established the Tracey Scone Wig Library in 2000. Its founders understood how low self-esteem, combined with the ongoing cost of treatment, can contribute to levels of stress detrimental to recovery. The Wig Library has since loaned wigs to hundreds of cancer patients from 20 hospitals across New South Wales.

We welcome all cancer patients experiencing hair loss from chemotherapy.

Patients often tell us that wearing a wig helps to boost their confidence and gives them more strength to face the everyday challenges of cancer treatment.

That’s why we set up the Tracey Scone Wig Library, as part of our quest to try and make your treatment journey a little easier.

We have high-quality wigs in a large range of colours, lengths and styles for you to choose from – and you can borrow one, totally free of charge, for as long as you need it.

To make an appointment call (02) 8382 2698 or email info@arrow.org.au

The Tracey Scone Wig Library is located at 16 Leichhardt St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010 (Behind St Vincent’s Public Hospital, Sydney)

Please note that open days and hours vary so appointments are essential.

Look Good, Feel Better

If you’re thinking about visiting our wig library, you may also be interested in ‘Look Good Feel Better’ – a national community service program for men, women and teens to help you manage the appearance-related side-effects of cancer treatment.

You’ll get to take part in a practical workshop that covers skincare, make-up and headwear demonstrations, leaving you empowered and ready to face your cancer diagnosis with confidence.

To register for a workshop visit www.lgfb.org.au or call 1800 650 960.
