The Little Princess Trust

Description:

The Little Princess Trust is a children’s cancer charity whose mission is to supply real hair wigs to children and young people up to the age of 24, with cancer, for the duration of their treatment.

The charity provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.  As a result of treatment for cancer, most children will suffer hair loss as a side effect.  Some children cope remarkably well, but for others this can be very upsetting.

In addition, they also assist children and young people with other conditions which also result in hair loss, the most common being alopecia.

The charity works with specialist suppliers and experienced hairdressers who offer wigs tailored to the individual child’s needs to give the most realistic look and feel, as close as possible to their original hair.  They strive to put parents / guardians in contact with suppliers as local as possible.

For further information, please follow the link to visit their website.
