Guardian Angel Caring Room
If you are experiencing hair loss or other appearance-related side effects from your treatment we may be of assistance to you.
The Guardian Angel Caring Room and its Coordinator are completely supported by funds raised through the Guardian Angel Benefit. It is dedicated to help people with cancer with appearance-related side effects.
A Wig Service, head coverings and laryngectomy stoma covers are available at no charge. In addition, the Look Good Feel Better Program is offered which provides hands-on workshops on skin care, makeup and head covering techniques.
It is recommended that you make an appointment.
Sewn, Knit and Crochet Patterns
The Guardian Angel Caring Room provides copies of sewn, knit, and crochet patterns for patients and families. These patterns are also available electronically. If you would like to make and donate any headwear items for the Guardian Angel Caring Room, please contact the Coordinator before you start to discuss quantity, Stephanie Plaitin 204-237-2789 email@example.com

Hair donations across Canada are processed through the Canadian Cancer Society. Through their partnership with Proctor & Gamble Canada and the launch of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign, wigs have been created, donated and distributed to women all across Canada. On average, it takes 7 donations to make one wig. If you are interested in donating your hair to the program, please visit www.cancer.ca for more information and to print off a postage-paid mailing envelope.
