University Hospitals offering free nail and wig salon for cancer patients

University Hospitals opens American Cancer Society Wig Salon

CLEVELAND - Coping with the effects of cancer can be overwhelming.

But University Hospitals and the American Cancer Society are hoping to address at least one more need for patients.

On Thursday, UH's Siedman Cancer Center celebrated the grand opening of Le Salon. It's a free nail and wig salon for cancer patients.

“UH Seidman Cancer Center is a wonderful partner and we are pleased to be able to work together to help patients with some of the appearance related side effects of cancer treatment. Losing your hair due to treatment can be so devastating and we are happy to be able to ease this burden,” said Sarah Wells, executive director of the American Cancer Society.

And while all services are complimentary, appointments are required. You can make an appointment by calling 216-844-WIGS.

“UH is excited to offer these services to cancer patients with the support of the American Cancer Society and other partners.  We have already helped a few patients in Le Salon and can see the positive impact they are making,” said Nathan Levitan, MD, President of UH Seidman Cancer Center.

The salon is made possible through the American Cancer Society's Free Wig Salon program.
