We are proud to partner with Augusta University to provide wigs for local cancer patients who’s insurance does not cover cosmetic enhancements. We believe that when a person feels whole and β€œnormal” they have a better chance of overcoming obstacles in their way of a happy and healthy life. Each wig donated was or will be customized for a local patient undergoing cancer treatments. All wigs were handmade by GIC students and dedicated to the memory of someone they knew who lost their life to this terrible disease. We are happy to touch local lives as much as they have touched ours! What a wonderful season for giving!
