Free Wigs for Kids - 7 Year Old Girl with Leukemia Receives Free Wig (Blog)

7 year old girl with Leukemia receives free wig

dulce1Katie Adelhardt is a child life specialist at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore. She is working with a 7 year old girl, Dulce, who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia and was hoping to have a wig provided for her.

Katie was recommended to Andrew DiSimone at Katie filled out the form for the girl, and attached the only photo they had with her hair in a ponytail. Not long after, the 7 year old, came into the salon with her mom to receive her wig. It was exactly what she wanted: black, straight and long with bangs.

The smile on Dulce’s face was priceless. She was so glad to have hair, and we are so happy that we can help.
