Girl Donates Hair
Bailey Klanderud, a member of Elkhorn Hills UMC, donated 10 inches of hair to Wigs 4 Kids in October, 2016. Most recipients are cancer patients, but children suffering hair loss because of alopecia, trichotillomania, burns, lupus, and any other medical condition are also eligible. This is Bailey’s second time donating her hair. “My goal is to donate 5 times. It’s easy and is for a good cause. Plus, it’s a renewable resource!”
Wigs 4 Kids is a non-profit organization providing kids age 3-18 new hair, new hope, and a chance to be themselves. Each wig retails between $2500 – $3000 and costs Wigs 4 Kids about $800 and 16 hours of labor to provide. At Wigs 4 Kids, no child is turned away and no family ever pays.

Donna Brown, owner of Hair World in Bennington, NE, has handled the hair donation both times. At the end of the appointment, an amazing thing happened. The next customer was a woman whose niece suffered from leukemia and had worn a wig for aesthetic purposes during her treatment. The customer spoke about how important it was for her niece to get a wig with healthy, young hair. She thanked Bailey on behalf of her niece and other children suffering hair loss from cancer treatments and other reasons.
