Hair Replacement for Cancer Patients
The Crisman Foundation
Raising funds to help cancer patients who want hair replacement services, but cannot afford it.
We aim to be a leader in bringing the sense of normalcy during the period of time when there is hair loss, and to empower those affected to live their lives as normal as possible. The Crisman Foundation was founded by Tom and Midgi Crisman in 2010 to serve men, women and children coping with cancer and other life threatening diseases and to enrich the patient’s quality of life with a comfortable salon setting and relaxing experience. The Crisman Foundation will empower people by giving them back their hair and their confidence, so they can begin to rebuild their self-esteem.
The Crisman Foundation provides hair prosthesis and hair extensions to financially disadvantaged women and children suffering from medical hair loss from cancer and any other long term medical diagnosis. We aim to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to the client-patient suffering from hair loss by using the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged clients. The participants receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need and to fill the financial void that may have occurred with the insurance coverage. As well as assist start up and existing nonprofit organizations further their causes and improve their communities overall standard of living.
Our recipients are suffering from medical hair loss from the radiation and/or chemo treatments for cancer and other medical diagnosis.
It is our goal to help provide a foundation on which:
The typical price for a hair replacement/hair treatment service is $1500.00. Although insurance generally does not cover male or female pattern hair loss, it may cover the cost of a hair addition when hair loss is caused by disease or other abnormalities. The Crisman Foundation will provide its clients with up-to-date information on insurance policies and forms for hair replacement services.
Please consider helping The Crisman Foundation.
