Losing your hair during cancer treatment is a common and unsettling experience.  We are here to help make it feel a little less distressing!

We have a large inventory of new and gently used wigs available. Any donated wig is washed and styled before it is added to our boutique inventory. They vary from long to short, straight to curly to wavy, and deep to light shades of “standard” hair colors.  Wigs are available in our Boutique at CRC and at our mini Boutiques located near the chemotherapy suites at Cayuga Medical Center – main and East campuses.

Here is more information on wig careCRC’s wig guide and tips, and local & nearby wig sources.

Turbans, Hats, and Scarves

Turbans and hats are a lovely alternative to wigs, which some women find hot and uncomfortable to wear. An advantage of the Boutique at the Cancer Resource Center is that people may make a free selection of all kinds of headwear to take home and try out.

The types, colors, and styles of turbans, hats, and scarves are limited only by what is available at any given time at the center. Most have been made and donated by generous women in the area. Once you have found items that are becoming and meet your needs, you may choose to buy similar ones online.

Turbans, hats, and scarves are available online through several catalogs.
