Wig Service

CancerCare Manitoba's wig program is offered in the Guardian Angel Caring Room, Room 1046, first floor at the 675 McDermot Avenue location. There is also a Caring Room at St. Boniface Hospital Oncology, South Entrance, Ground Floor - look for the Orange Door.

Receptionists at both locations will be able to direct you. 

Through the wig program patients experiencing hair loss can borrow wigs and other headcoverings free of charge. All wigs are cleaned and sanitized before being loaned out. Patients are asked to return the items when they are no longer needed.  

Appointments are encouraged at both sites. Drop-ins are welcome at the McDermot Ave location. 

For more information, please speak with any of our volunteers at (204) 787- 4180.
