At Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan, our number one goal is to provide a wig to any Michigan child or teen in need...and we want our kids to feel good about themselves!
At our Wellness Center, we fit children with custom wigs at no charge and teach their families how to care for them. In addition, we provide support services (classes, social activities, field trips and counseling) to help our kids heal emotionally, socially & psychologically. Through the kindness and generosity of the community, we are able to provide these services at no charge to the children and their families.
It's a 2 step process:
Step 1: Fill out the form. Each potential recipient needs to fill out a Client Application:
Go to Client Application Form
Step 2: Meet our team. Once the form is submitted, a representative will contact the recipient's parent/legal guardian to set-up the first appointment.
We kindly request families to obtain a doctor’s note on a letterhead stating the child or teen is in need of a wig. We ask the recipient to please bring the doctor’s note to the 1st visit or have your doctor/dermatologist fax the form to 586-772-6674 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the child has experienced hair loss, we ask them to bring prior photos.
The 1st Visit
During the 1st visit, we will measure and order the recipient’s hair prosthesis and select their style, color, and length of hair desired.
The 2nd Visit
At the 2nd visit we will fit, cut, style, and educate the recipient on how to maintain their new wig.
The 3rd Visit
The 3rd visit entails making any necessary adjustments, review care instructions and photograph the before and after pictures of the recipient.
Every recipient will be given:
- Wig shampoo, conditioner, wig comb and brush
- Netted cap to be worn under wig to keep it secure
- Headform, stand & Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan tote for wig
- Tee pins to secure wig to headform
- Wire wig stand to use after cleansing
- Chinstrap to secure wig when styling
- Sleep cap to be worn at night
- Printed instructions of how to maintain & care for their wig
