In Pennsylvania, most insurance companies do not cover the cost of a wig. This is why radio personality Bonny Diver, after being diagnosed with breast cancer, started Hair Peace Charities. This non-profit provides financial assistance of up to $150 towards the purchase of a wig. Funds are available to those living in the area codes 412 and 724. HPC also offers monthly supports meeting, in the North and South Hills, for women diagnosed with all types of cancer.
If you know someone going through cancer in need of assistance, have them call Bonny at 412-327-5177.
