Our Care Salon is dedicated to providing wig consultation and styling for cancer patients dealing with the physical and emotional needs of hair loss. The Salon is funded by the Avera Race Against Breast Cancer through the Avera McKennan Foundation.
We offer the most natural high-quality wigs available and allow patients to try wigs on for fit, color, and style. When the perfect wig is selected, it will be special ordered for each woman.
