Jonathan Farrant with the recipient of his donated hair through Wigs of Hope at the Centro Médico Ayúdame a Vivir Cancer Hospital in El Salvador, Central America. “I felt inspired to do something for this girl,” said Jonathan Farrant.

ORLANDO, Fla. – As a result chemotherapy, children with cancer lose their hair every day. Wigs of Hope, a nonprofit organization based in Orlando, Florida, provides an opportunity for donors to donate hair and money to make free wigs.

Hundreds of children with cancer lose their hair due to cancer. Wigs of Hope delivers the hair pieces to girls with cancer. Jonathan and Alicia Farrant founded Wigs of Hope in 2015 after learning about the need. Hairpieces were expensive for most children.

After visiting the children at the Centro Médico Ayúdame a Vivir Cancer Hospital in El Salvador, “I felt inspired to do something for this girl,” said Jonathan Farrant.

You can learn more about donating your hair and or how to donate money to make wigs by watching the video below and by visiting WigsofHope.org.
