Friends is proud to fund the UW Health Wigs for Patients program, which provides high-quality wigs, turbans and scarves at no charge for UW Health patients experiencing hair loss due to medical treatment. The Wig Salon serves more than 450 patients each year.
A licensed cosmetologist staffs the salon along with other trained volunteers. They help patients find the right wig and fit, cut and shape the wig, and teach patients how to care for it.
The Wig Salon is located within the UW Carbone Cancer Clinic at University Hospital. To make an appointment for the salon, please call (608) 265-1700.
Monetary donations are warmly welcomed. Donations can be made online or checks can be made out to Friends of UW Health and mailed to:
