In addition to his foundation, Sofia’s Hair for Health created in memory of his own mother whose struggle with cancer and subsequent hair loss from chemotherapy, has inspired Rodolfo Valentin to design the first hair prosthesis in the world. This October breast cancer awareness month, Rodolfo Valentin is not going to cure cancer, but at least will make sufferers of this devastating disease experiencing hair loss to go through it easier, by donating hair prosthesis. These are truly cancer wigs and will provide complimentary hair prosthesis to individuals who have suffered hair loss due to chemotherapy.
After doing an extensive research, Rodolfo Valentin has concluded that the Hewlett House is the deserving beneficiary to the hair prosthesis donation. This organization is committed to helping people avoid the profound isolation, despair and fear often felt by people with cancer.
When an individual misses one’s hair due to cancer, they often sense they have lost their identity and their self-confidence that develops in depressed moods. Isn’t it pleasant to know that you can help battle those feelings of despair?
That’s why contributing with hair prosthesis for cancer sufferers is so satisfying. It doesn’t just provide them hair – it offers them assurance. Donating hair prosthesis to create a natural look will also allow patients to go on with their lives without making a statement of being sick to the rest of the world.
Each hair prosthesis donation is delivered with a certificate of $ 200 value to customize it that includes shampoo, cut and style, which regular cost is $ 250. As a result the beneficiary only will paid $ 50.-
The date is Monday October 31, 2011 at the Rodolfo Valentin (Long Island Salon) – 137 Cedarhurst Avenue – Cedarhurst – NY 11516 at 12 noon.
