Cuts Against Cancer in the Philippines

Posted by International Inner Wheel | Jul 03, 2019 |

Joyce Ferrer-Araullo is a charter member of the Inner Wheel Club of Chinatown - District 382. She donates her hair every two years to organizations that makes wigs for cancer patients.

This personal advocacy started in 2014, the year her father passed away from lung cancer.

Cuts Against Cancer say that their only requirements are that the hair is not coloured/permed/re-bonded The reason for this is that processed hair can be too dry, weak and brittle which means it breaks, tangles, and sheds easily, splitting ends during the manufacturing of the prosthesis.  It also should be at least 12 inches in length, otherwise it presents tremendous difficulty to sew and secure to the Medical Cap.
