Financial donations go a long way, but it takes more than money to care for these brave women. Donating your time and getting involved with our organization really helps us save lives.


According to medical studies from the University of Iowa, more than 18,000 Iowans are newly diagnosed with cancer each year. It is Strands of Strength’s mission to provide quality new wigs to these cancer patients to help cover the significant hair loss that can accompany treatment. By raising the funds to buy wigs and by working with medical facilities to screen recipients, Strands of Strength is – quite literally – saving people’s lives.
