Our resident, Margaret at Shelburne LTC has battled cancer for a lengthy period and wanted a wig due to her hair loss. Her Bridge to Dream was fulfilled!
Here is her heartfelt letter she wrote thanking our staff:
My name is Margaret and I have battled cancer for the past ten years. Before I had cancer my hair was thick and curly. After I had chemo treatment for the cancer my hair mostly fell out and when it started to grow back it was very thin and straight. I lived with it for several years, but then decided to try to see if I could get a wig. I requested a Paula Young catalogue which came within two weeks. I picked out a wig that was like a pixie cut. The staff ordered it for me, and it arrived in only 8 days! They then told me the bill was taken care of with the Bridge to Dreams Program. I did not expect that and for that I am truly grateful to my home at Shelburne Long Term Care and all the wonderful staff.

It’s the little things in life. Beverley wanted her hair done at the salon, so we made a morning of it. First stop was Cobwebs and Caviar to visit with AJ Cavey (the owner) who kindly welcomed us to her business and let Bev pick out a pretty scarf and some fun socks. Next stop was Enchanting Esthetics. Jasmine gave Bev a beautiful hand massage and manicure and then over to Crystal who made Bev’s hair beautiful again. Next up on the way home was Jelly Craft Bakery for a little treat to end her day. A walk in the sunshine to get out to all of these downtown Shelburne businesses and a morning of non-stop smiles. What a great day!
