Hair loss can be a side effect experienced when going through cancer treatment. For some cancer patients, this can be emotionally distressing and difficult for them to deal with. Thanks to services like Cancer Council Queensland's ESA Wig and Turban Service, there is support available to all cancer patients across Queensland, free of charge, to help them feel confident again. By raising funds through Ponytail Project, you are helping to ensure that Australians are not alone when they need support.
