Wigs and Breast Prosthesis Banks

The Canadian Cancer Society’s Wig and Breast Prosthesis Banks provide a wide range of donated wigs, headwear, permanent prostheses and bras to cancer patients throughout BC and Yukon who have undergone surgery and cannot afford the cost of a wig or prosthesis.

Patients can visit wig rooms in various communities to browse a selection of real-hair wigs. Wigs and breast prostheses can also be mailed to patients.
