Recently I have had cancer hit very close to home, and I this charity, and run has given me a way to give back and to help fight, because #cancersucks but no one fights alone.
Hair Peace Charities is honored to be partnering with the Pittsburgh Marathon. Participants can now join our HPC Team and dedicate their participation and fundraising on behalf of our organization. Their fundraising will help us further our mission of helping women and girls receive financial assistance towards the purchase a wig needed due to cancer treatment. Hair Peace assists women in the 11 county region of Western Pennsylvania.
With your help Hair Peace Charities can reach our goal!
With many cancers, women will lose their hair 15 days after the first chemotheraphy treatment. In Pennsylvania, most insurance companies do not cover the cost of a wig. This is why radio personality Bonny Diver-Hall started Hair Peace Charities, to provide financial assistance to women and girls for the purchase of a wig. Hair Peace provides up to $150 towards the purchase of a wig. Funds are available to those living in the area codes 412 and 724.
If you know someone going through cancer in need of assistance, have them call Bonny at 412-327-5177.
Hair Peace Charities counts on the monetary gifts from the community to provide this assistance and thanks everyone for their contributions.
