You may be wondering how Girl on the Go got started. Here is my story:
My Dear “Sister”,
I am sorry to learn you have been diagnosed with cancer. It is a hard reality to hear. I know, when I heard those words in October of 2000 I was overwhelmed and frightened. I was also very worried about losing my hair; I felt strangely guilty for being concerned about my hair when my doctor was discussing my life. Yet, I could not stop thinking about how would I look without my long hair? I worried wearing a wig would make my illness visible to everyone – – turning a personal experience into a very public “outing.” I knew I had the strength to fight my cancer, but why did I have to use some of that energy to fight for my privacy? Just the idea of finding and then walking into a wig shop made me feel as if I was “on display”, sick, alone and vulnerable.
You may feel the same way I did. If you do, we have developed a unique wig shopping experience that focuses on you. Girl on the Go offers our clients a personal, in-home wig shopping experience, allowing you complete comfort, convenience and privacy.
Call us at 1-800-355-6976 to find out more about our service.
Or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) your photo or a picture of a hairstyle you like and we will be happy to discuss how we can make it work as a wig.
Wishing you the best of health in the days to come.
