Practical Programs

Our Wig and Prosthesis Clinics aim to empower individuals diagnosed with cancer to look and feel their best during treatment and beyond and to cope with dignity and confidence. Clients are offered personalized fittings and free products to improve their sense of well-being and receive psychosocial support from an oncology social worker. Clients can receive wigs through our NYC and NJ offices, and breast prostheses through our NYC office.
