Owner of Salon Glam, Rosanna reached out to us through her friend, our committee member and community outreach specialist, Jessica McCready (@mama.mccready on instagram) at the end of last year to let us know she was wanting to extend her community giving profile to help families going through childhood cancers & blood disorders at BC Children’s Hospital. This is no surprise if you know Burnaby studio Salon Glam, or it’s philanthropic owner, Rosanna. Just check out the community page on their website- it’s full of incredible giving-back initiatives and is so inspiring.
So! Here’s Rosanna’s offer. She wants any child or teen going through treatment to feel beautiful, pampered, and like they can take control of their hair loss, with a pre-loss shave, new growth or wig-styling tutorial! So whether that means a trip to her salon to shave off hair before or as it’s starting to fall out due to treatment, or perhaps it’s by getting some tips and tutorials on how to style their real-hair wig or newly grown-in hair. Balding for Dollars will also happily support the cost of transportation to/from the hospital or other reasonable distance if the family needs that support too.
If your child is a current patient at BCCH and would like to look into this service, please get in touch with Suzanne Dunbar at [email protected] to chat and arrange it! We look forward to partnering to bring some joy to a sometimes painful hair loss journey.
