Yesterday Mary got her wig and looks amazing Mary again. I can't describe how heart breaking it was at first (for us both - me watching her) as we sat in silence with the reality and was able to just be, albeit painful. The tears came as she removed her woollen hat in the mirror as she looked at a person she no longer recognised. I feel so privileged to be on such a personal journey with her. I know it's just hair and, yes, it will grow back but when it comes to the crunch for both males and females who lose their hair through illness, is it is indeed a loss and another thing to put up with. It was magic watching her demeanour change once the wig was on and cut similar to how she usually wears her hair. It was just the best ever to see Mary walking out a totally different lady and even went into New World with me to get a couple of items. The difference in her is very noticeable. When I visited her yesterday, I even felt the difference seeing her sitting in the lounge with her hair piece looking ‘normal’. To go into chemotherapy on Friday with her wig will make a huge difference. Leigh the lovely “wig lady” was the perfect person to see and talked to us about chemo actually being a drug of well health as it regenerates cells very, very fast. Hair loss is the old cells all clearing out reading for the body to create new cells. That’s why the hair grows back lovely and the skin is plumpy. It gave us both a different understanding of chemotherapy which got Mary through the tears and the fear. The human body is an amazing machine. Hell this woman is going to look younger than me soon! Needless to say the Wellington wind may cause us a few problems in regard to the wig, so have to learn some tricks J I’m not going to call it a wig, but will refer to it as her hair. Her comment to me was “I’ve never been bald in all of my life – I was born with a full head of hair!

I couriered it off to her the following Monday and she received it on the Friday, just as her hair started to come out in clumps, so she shaved it all off. She is thrilled with it, it suited her perfectly and is just like her own hair. Thanks so much for all the help you gave me on choosing this - it's done wonders for her morale and I appreciate that you let me try on to find the perfect one! Thanks read less

I love wearing my wigs & how it makes me feel. My family & friends have been so supportive.
I made an appointment with Ann(name changed) & found her amazing. Thank you for that. She has cut & styled them to my liking. Of course I have sometimes doubted myself & thought “people will know” but on the whole I have been OK.
A man came up to me at Pak’nSave car park & said that his wife got him to ask me “where I got my hair cut”!
She wanted a style just like mine!!!
Thank you again for everything. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family.
Kind regards read less

It became very important to me to ensure that I had a wig that enabled me to function as normally as possible outside the myriad of medical appointments and hospital visits that started to fill my days.
What I expected to be one of the more confrontational realities I would have to face as part of my cancer experience, was actually a really relaxed and enjoyable experience. I booked in for a wig consultation with Leigh and, right from the moment she answered the door and let me into her studio, I was made to feel welcome and relaxed. I had an extremely informative session with her and then tried on a few wigs. The process of narrowing the choices down was made so much easier with Leigh’s wig expert advice and I left very happy with the wig I chose read less

I have seen numerous people over the past few months regarding my hair loss (long story)... but no one else came close to the empathy that Simone showed me.
She has got to be one of the kindest....most caring and professional person I have "ever" met.
There are not enough words to say...from both Steve and I on how we are so impressed with her. read less
