Lillian Lee and her J Beverly Hills Concept Salon on Teaneck Road began the giveaways last weekend. They're continuing through the end of the month.
Lee over the years has been collecting, refurbishing and customizing donated wigs free of charge to women and girls with cancer. The mission is funded by Do Wonders, a 501(c)3 designated non-profit charity that she established.
The wigs mean a great deal to the hundreds of patients referred not only by word of mouth but also by Tomorrow’s Children at Hackensack University Medical Center, Gilda’s Club, Holy Name Medical Center and Sharsheret.
“Losing your hair after cancer treatment becomes another frustration in a long battle,” Lee said. “This is one way of helping them cope.
“Feeling good on the outside helps you feel better on the inside. With a customized wig, you can maintain your identity and dignity through such a difficult time.”
