Crain’s Cleveland Business features wig boutique in crowdfunding story

August 14, 2017

Check out Crain’s coverage of the wig boutique and Cleveland Clinic’s new crowdfunding platform!

Crain’s saw something special in this project, and we know what that is. A wig, scarf or hat can give that intangible gift of confidence – a feeling so often elusive when cancer strikes.

We know first-hand how meaningful that gift can be. Thank you to all who have donated, and to all who will continue to help us support more and more patients at the Taussig Cancer Center.

Please share the story and our project page with family and friends to keep the momentum going!

Halfway there - final stretch!

July 26, 2017

Thank you for helping us reach the halfway mark towards our goal! 

Margaret Rose Giltinan, breast cancer survivor, patient, and wig boutique founder, shares her personal thanks to all of you in this week's update video below.

With just over one week left, we need to keep the message alive. Please share this video and our project page with your friends and communities - because every gift helps.

We all know fighting cancer takes a toll on your physical, mental, and emotional states. The wig boutique is a truly special place that makes a real difference in people's lives, and you can make an impact with any gift amount. 

All proceeds go directly to purchasing wigs and accessories. We are so thankful for your support thus far and look forward to sharing another update soon!
