ARE YOU OR A LOVED ONE LOSING YOUR HAIR DUE TO TREATMENT OF A DISEASE?
Joy Rising is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to providing relief to those who are undergoing chemotherapy (or other diseases, treatments, etc. resulting in hair loss) a realistic, natural looking hair system.
Our goal is to help individuals experiencing hair-loss live their everyday lives without unnecessary anxiety due to their appearance. Going to the grocery store, attending their child’s recital, or celebrating a loved one’s special event are rarely times when one wishes to be asked about their illness. By providing patients with custom styled “wigs,” who on their cancer journey can focus on healing and share the details of their treatment privately.
While we would love to help every applicant, our funding is limited. By providing the required information, we are able to help those who are in the greatest need. We ask that you also submit a statement regrading how a realistic hair system (wig) would help you through your journey.
Please allow Joy Rising Project two weeks to review your request. If you are recently diagnosed please take a few minutes to photograph your current hairstyle so a stylist will have a better idea of how your hair works. Any past pictures that display your cut/color will also help ensure your hair system looks as natural as possible.
