I was directed to a wig supplier associated with a large cancer center. I was not given much to choose from and was not fitted in any way, not knowing any better I proceeded with the non-refundable purchase, to say the least I have never been able to wear the item as it really did look worse than no hair…. then someone referred me to Martino Cartier Salons…. I can’t say enough about Dawn who helped me select a style, gave advice on cut etcetera; all of the staff who make you feel so comfortable – something that rarely happens anymore even amongst friends and family :( and what a beautiful environment!!!! Best testimony – when my 8 yr old saw me in my wig for the first time, she couldn’t contain herself, she even commented “Mom, I think it might even look better than your real hair did”.LOL. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and my self-esteem!!! Sandee White

I was in need of a wig and, contacted Friends are by Your Side and, I was helped immediately. This is such a wonderful group. I can go out now and feel like a “normal” person. I really cannot adequately express my appreciation and, what this wig has meant to me. If, it had not been for FABYS I could not have afforded a wig with my present circumstances. It was completely no hassle, only let us help you.

A special thank you to Gail Benson . Gail is a very special compassionate person who was always there when I needed her.

I found out about Gail and her salon via a nurse at my oncology office when I started chemotherapy in 2014. I called and the wonderful staff got me in to see her almost immediately and I was able to consult about what I needed or wanted going forward. I hadn’t lost all my hair yet, but it was going fast. She cut it and gave it a treatment that was wonderful. We determined that I would probably benefit from having a wig going forward and she was able to provide me with a really great one that same day. It was a wonderful experience that made me feel great at a time when that didn’t seem possible. I will be forever grateful to all the people who give of themselves so constantly.
