WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The local chapter of the American Cancer Society received a donation today from Cape Fear Community College students. Unlike most donations this was not a monetary one.
Cosmetology students donated twelve hand-woven wigs to our local American Cancer Society. The weeks were made last week by students as part of a class project.
The different wigs will go to cancer patients who have experienced hair loss associated with chemotherapy. Instructors say the students wanted to donate the wigs in observance of breast cancer awareness month.
WECT has its own breast cancer awareness program. Become a Pink Pack Pal today! Get helpful reminders to do life saving self breast exams.
