Hi RJ,

Cancer Fairy Godmother was recently contacted by a company that might be able to help with the wig:

They are called Hulda’s Lace Wigs and their website is

I am going to do a write up of their site, but I have been pretty busy. They seem to be very nice people, and I must say that my first response to them was very rude, I must find some way to make an amends.

Sorry for the delay on this, Nak

I’d like to know about getting a wig or bonnet for my mom this is her second battle with cancer. This time she has had chemo and radiation surgery and now 6 more months of chemo of which she was told this type wouldn’t cause her hair to fall out, which was wrong. Her hair is falling out, I want to get something to help her feel a lil better she doesn’t have the will, she’s ready to give up.

I am a 68 year old who has lost her hair not once but twice in one year! I do not have cancer, but the Dr. has not found a cause for this to happen. This also involves ALL body hair. I am having a really rough time applying eyebrows that match. One is always a different shape and/or color. I have tried to use little plastic shapes with powder eyebrow makeup but there is nothing for the powder to stick to. My eyelashes consist of three on one eye and not many more on the other. I am having a really hard time handling this situation for a second time. I was able to purchase a wig at a nominal cost but the exhorbitant cost of permanent make-up is prohibitive. Can you make some positive suggestions? My wig is now over a year old and is starting to show its age, I could use help with that also. Thanks for any information you can give me. I am in a rural area of Wisconsin so my options may be limited.
