The Children Cancer Foundation launched its campaign to collect human hair three years ago, as a result of which every little patient may get a wig that is made from real hair. In Hungary some 320 children are diagnosed with cancer every year. These children lose their hair as a side-effect of chemotherapy or radiation treatment. The Children Cancer Foundation launched its campaign “A lock is for you, treasure is for them”, during which human hair is collected to make wigs for ill children free of any charge, – writes the portal delmagyar.hu based on the article of the daily newspaper Délmagyarország.
Wigs that are made from real hair are much more comfortable to wear than those made of synthetic fibres, that is why it is very important for us to give such wigs. There is a salon in Pest where your hair is cut and your new hairstyle is made free of any charge if the locks so cut are offered to the Children Cancer Foundation. Those who do not want to go to the capital city to have their hair cut may also send it to the Foundation by post after having it professionally cut, writes the portal.
