The HaLo Fund
The HaLo Fund was established to help women who have experienced the trauma of hair loss due to chemotherapy by providing financial assistance in the form of a $350 voucher towards the purchase of a beautiful, natural-looking wig at Hair Enhancements of Pittsburgh. This is vital to these women because when a woman’s hair (her halo!) is restored, she experiences the very important benefits of increased self-confidence, improved health and even a more positive outlook about the future. Plus, Hair Enhancements of Pittsburgh, our exclusive partner in this effort, carries an assortment of helpful accessories including hats, turbans, scarves, hair products and wig supplies in addition to the best synthetic and human hair wigs currently available.
The G.I.F.T Fund
The Pink Pamper established its G.I.F.T Fund to help women currently undergoing treatment for cancer during the winter holiday season. These women give The Pink Pamper their wish list of gifts for their children, husbands and themselves. The Pink Pamper tries to get most everything donated, but if there are items that are not donated, we try to cover the cost of everything on their lists including a grocery store gift card.. The Pink Pamper sets a day and time for the women and their families to pick up their presents or in some cases we will provide delivery for their gifts. The Pink Pamper developed this fund for two reasons. The first is to lift the burden that holiday shopping can bring for these women. By doing this task for them, The Pink Pamper helps to eliminate the possibility of the women being exposed to additional illnesses. Most of these women have very compromised immune systems due to their treatments. The second reason is to eliminate the stress of covering expenses that are associated with the winter holidays. At times, there are unforeseen costs that arise when dealing with cancer. The Pink Pamper hopes to alleviate some of the financial pressures that they experience by making their holidays seem as normal as possible.
“The Pink Pamper Organization has been very helpful to women at Magee undergoing treatment for cancer, who are also facing the financial burden of a cancer diagnosis and care”
“Something like a wig, during hair loss because of chemotherapy, may seem like a minor thing, but to a woman who is fighting every day to maintain some control over her life as a cancer patient. It means dignity, well-being and helps them be the best they can be. The HaLo Fund of the Pink Pamper Organization provides a valuable support for wigs for these women”
“Having an organization like the Pink Pamper, and their support for wigs, allows women fighting breast and gynecologic cancers the opportunities to maintain some sense of control over their disease and treatment and gives them the ability to look and feel more positive about themselves during treatment”
