800 Wigs for Cancer Patients

Becky’s Place is a boutique for cancer patients on the Lexington Medical Center campus. Part of its mission is to provide wigs to patients who have lost their hair as a result of chemotherapy.

Over the past 19 years, Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative’s chapter of Women Involved in Rural Electrification (WIRE) has raised more than $140,000 to buy wigs for Becky’s Place. That’s approximately 800 wigs.

In this WLTX Buddy Call segment, news anchor Darci Strickland introduces us to one of the women helped by this charitable cause.

WIRE is having a golf tournament next month to raise more money for wigs at Becky’s Place. It will be at the Golden Hills Country Club on Monday, October 15, 2018 with lunch at noon and a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. Information on registration and teams can be found by calling (803) 749 – 6471.
