Our Foundation Supports the Recovery of the 21 year-old girl for nearly two years
It was in spring that we launched our program referred to as “A lock from you is Precious for Her” jointly with the “Curly Island” Adventure Hair Saloon for Children. Since then plenty of children have had her or his locks cut at the saloon, to facilitate the creation of wigs from natural hair for sick children. There were some who forwarded their cut locks directly to our Foundation. Bettina’s wig was made of these locks. Thank you for the generous donations!
Without a wig
Bettina and her twin was diagnosed with cancer at the age of three months. To prevent spreading of the tumour one of their eyes of both of them were removed by way of surgical operation.
Bettina was attacked again by this devastating disease two years ago, as a consequence of which her other eye was jeopardised. She was treated at a clinic in Germany. As a side-effect of the therapy she lost her hair, due to which this reserved girl more and more became reluctant to meet people.
She has used a wig made of artificial hair hitherto, but this has become more and more inconvenient for her. She has been longing for a wig made of natural hair. Due to the ruined financial status of her family they could not afford to have a wig made of natural hair prepared, that is why they turned to our Foundation for help.
Wearing the new wig
Keeping her recovery in sight and using the donated locks of hair we had the wig prepared and now she has been wearing it proudly.
She regained her long-lost self-esteem and she feels a girl of full value again.
