Free Wigs for Cancer

More than a hair salon, we help patients receive free wigs and insurance pre-approval!

American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Andrew DiSimone “The Wig Whisperer” is the salon’s owner and creator of ADWIgs. He volunteers cutting and styling wigs at the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge NYC (Look Good Feel Better Program). Through ACS, cancer patients can receive a free wig. If there’s a long waiting list, we may have a gently-used synthetic wig that you are welcome to have for free. We also offer free estimates for insurance pre-approval for a new medical wig. Just send us a picture of what you want your hair to look like, and we’ll take care of the rest. And you don’t have to leave your home or hospital bed.

In-hospital consultations available in Manhattan only.

DOCTORS: If you are an Oncologist or Dermatologist, you can refer patients to us. We’ll treat them as if they were our own.
