I love this idea. I agree that child cancer patients are already dealing with enough and that a gesture as simple as a free wig could really feel like a big gesture to them. Some good things to consider might be to look into other charities for childhood cancer to see if they would be open to helping or providing some guidance on how to get started.

Again, this is a good idea and I’m really interested in seeing how it turns out.
