Hair loss is a side effect of cancer treatment and can leave patients struggling with body image, which adds to their many preexisting physical and emotional struggles caused by cancer. Some people choose to wear wigs to feel better about themselves, but buying and maintaining wigs can be very expensive and is not affordable by everyone.
Cope with Cancer is an organisation that helps people cope with cancer in several ways. One of these ways is to provide free wigs to patients who cannot afford them. They accept hair donations from people and make wigs out of them. Wigs made of natural hair look and feel more real as compared to those made of artificial hair.
In August 2018, Afrah donated 12 inches of her hair for this cause. Sarah waited for her hair to grow longer, and then donated 12 inches of her hair in June 2019. ( https://www.copewithcancer.org/afrah-mundewadi https://www.copewithcancer.org/sarah-mundewadi )
