Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center and Salon is dedicated to help build the self-esteem of young patients dealing with hair loss as a result from various illnesses such as cancer, alopecia, trichotillomania, as well as burn victims. We are committed to provide free hair replacement systems and support services for our clients (also referred to as Ambassadors) throughout Michigan.
Our vision has lead us to become a leading Wellness Center in Michigan where families of children diagnosed with short-or-long term hair loss can receive help at no charge, while also providing allied health services, educational and professional guidance. Through these efforts, Wigs 4 Kids is committed to improve a child’s quality of life by helping them deal with the appearance-related side effects of treatment.
Our values of integrity and sensitivity are an important part of who we are. Wigs 4 Kids is fully committed to community service, as well as growth and balance of the organization, by maintaining the highest quality in goods, services, and programs we provide. We ensure the highest standards in care, while respecting the dignity and privacy of our Ambassadors. Wigs 4 Kids is also dedicated to ensure donors that every penny given to the organization will be spent towards achieving our mission to help as many clients / Ambassadors as funding permits. We respect all ethnic, cultural, religious and lifestyle differences of patients, their families, our colleagues and supporters. Our Board members, staff members, volunteers are all required to live up to these standards and values outlined by Wigs 4 Kids.
MI State Representatives Sarah Roberts and Jon Hoadley believe all MI "kids should be covered" - if they are experiencing hair loss, insurance companies should help cover the cost of a wig. Wigs 4 Kids worked with our state representatives on Bills 4718 & 4808 to try and mandate this important legislation.
