Through your support, The Gathering Place can change – and save – the lives of woman throughout the Greater Cleveland area by providing direct access to free wigs, supportive services and hope through a new fundraising campaign, the Sisterhood of the Traveling Wigs.
The Gathering Place and New York Times bestselling author and Cleveland Jewish News columnist, Regina Brett, are working together to launch the traveling wig salon which will take hairpieces and other support items into the communities where women need them most, especially minority women in underserved areas who have higher mortality rates from cancer.
“I wanted to do something special to celebrate my cancer-versary,” said Brett. “I never imagined living 25 years past my diagnosis. I ‘get’ to grow old. So, let’s dare something mighty. Let’s raise $25,000 in 25 days to bring hope to women.”
"We've all been touched by cancer, so please support The Sisterhood of the Traveling Wigs.
Let's put some WOW in the world -- Wigs on Warriors.
Donate to honor all the warriors in your life."
- Regina Brett, New Times Best Selling Author and columnist for the Cleveland Jewish News
“When I was bald from chemo, I felt more like a patient than a person,” said Brett. “A wig can help those impacted by cancer feel bold and beautiful.”
