Hair Loss: Where to get wigs and hats

Note: This web site,, does not host advertising, nor does it receive funding of any type from the display of commercial content or advertising. Many of the links on these resource pages could be construed as advertising, as I link to web sites of companies that will profit from the sale of goods or services to parents of children with cancer. My intent is not to benefit these companies, instead, my intent is to let parents know how to find sometimes unusual items that can help their children. When applicable, I state when a particular product is free, or recommended by parents as particularly useful. I remove links to web sites if parents report problems.
