Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: American Cancer Society, local hospitals offer free wigs to cancer patients

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

Women going through certain kinds of chemotherapy for breast, uterine and other cancers all know the secret: That first clump of loose hair in your fist or on the pillow has a way of suddenly making the disease a reality.
