It's easy to be a hero: A little help can
make a big difference in a child's life.
Alopecia in children, cancer and any number of causes of hair loss that are effecting children can have a major impact on their everyday lives. A charitable organization like Wigs for Kids focuses on helping them face these challenges and boost their self-esteem by creating children’s wigs and providing them to kids in need. Children get to feel like the rest of their peers and live their lives with confidence.
