Greetings Everyone!

We are dedicated to educating the public, spreading awareness and we have an ambitious goal to make wigs for kids. We are currently seeking hair donations which will be used by our local wig manufacturer to produce beautiful wigs for kids. Donating guidelines are on our website.

We are a busy group and always like to have lots of fun and get together often so please make sure you check out our events and happenings around the area!

Please submit your ideas for places to meet, things to do or anything else you want to share! :)

This is an awesome group and we can't have too much support as women living with alopecia. I love hanging out with my bald sisters and encourage you all to reach out to me at or by phone (832) 4533255.  I love my bald and beautiful self!!  Happy holidays to you and yours!

I need to purchase a new wig and was going to buy vacumn wig or go to the place in Oakbrook you were mentioning. Does anyone have phone number for the place in Oabrook or name of the company?

Thank you!

Hi Stephanie,
It was great meeting you at the Conference. I wish we were able to spend more time together.
You're awesome!

Hi Beth,

No problem. I'll email you some of the options and let you know what is working for everyone. Several of us have Bloombrook ones now and are much happier with them. They look more natural and aren't hot like the vacuum ones. They are made here in Oakbrook and you can get them in just a couple weeks versus 4-6 months.

Sorry, we missed you at the conference I hope your husband is doing better.

Talk to you soon.

I hope you all had a great time at the conference. I wish i could have joined you. I need to start looking into different options for a nicer wig - vacumn, etc. I know you have all have had different experiences and have tried different options that are available. Could you provide some insights/comments on the pros, cons, costs, etc of the different options available in Chicago?

Thank you,
