Our Mission

To provide women suffering from hair loss while battling cancer with a customized human hair wig to help obtain, regain and maintain confidence. 

Who We Help

Crown the Cure is for women battling all types of cancer. Although you may have not  started chemotherapy, your doctor will more than likely inform you if the treatment that you will be receiving will cause your hair to fall out. This way you can prepare for hair loss if it is a side effect from your specific treatment.

How We Help

Hair is a major part of all women. The versatility is what makes you,you. Rather your hair is short, long, red or gray, Crown The Cure is here to customize each wig to each patient so that they feel like themselves while battling cancer. To provide the best experience our team will  get visual expectations of the qualified patient as well as head measurements and any allergies.

How You Help

We want to help as many woman as possible through our foundation and you can help too. Monetary donations are what we will use to provide the custom made human hair wigs to the patient. We would love for you to donate to our organization or sponsor a patient.
