BRIDGE TO DREAMS
New Wig for Cancer Survivor!
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.
