My wife went through her first bout of Chemo about 10 days ago … it was a 6-hour+ event. While we were there, I talked to several others who were getting treated. One woman, who was in her third round of chemo, had a beautiful head of hair. I remarked that at least she didn’t lose her hair. She quickly corrected me and told me that she was wearing a wig. I couldn’t believe it …. I am no expert, but I can usually identify a wig. She then told me about Martino, who had done her wig. Later that day, another woman showed up for chemo with a great head of hair (not looking at all like a wig) and told us that Martino had done hers as well. I just took my wife to Martino’s salon(she is just starting to lose her hair) and he identified a hair style & color that worked perfectly for her. We will be going back (probably next week when she loses more hair) to get the wig styled for her. Martino (Martino Cartier Salon in Sewell, NJ) is really good at his craft and very empathic toward people who going through a very difficult time in their lives.
I met an angel a few weeks ago. Her name is Gail Benson. I was blessed enough to have been given her name by another lovely lady who was going through chemo at the same time as me. She showed me pictures of the wig she received free of charge from Gail and shared a package of information about a fabulous organization called Friends Are By Your Side. I decided to check into it further and contacted Gail.
Gail has a huge heart and a sincere passion to help others. She is totally committed in sharing information about FABYS so others will know about this wonderful organization and it’s founder, Martino Cartier. I went to the salon nervous about baring my head and was met by warmth, kindness and genuine caring. I love my new wig and truly appreciate knowing that Gail will also take care of styling my hair as it starts to grow back. I know she will do it with love and… that I couldn’t be in better hands.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
