At Harrington Cancer Center, we make every effort to meet your needs during treatment - both medically and personally. The Patient Boutique is a free service for the patients of the Harrington Cancer Center who are receiving cancer treatment which may result in hair loss.
The Patient Boutique is located on the 2nd Floor of the Cancer Center, across from the South elevator. Volunteers provide wigs, sleeping caps, hats, and other items for our patients that have hair loss. There are volunteers available during clinic hours to assist with fittings and selections.
The private wig room is available to patients on an appointment basis. We have volunteer, professional stylists who are willing and ready to meet with you to assist with color-matching, wig fitting, wig cleaning and care, and style adjustments. All services are provided to patients at no charge. We have a small stock of new wigs in a variety of colors and styles, as well as other donated wigs that have been cleaned and re-styled.
We invite our patients to browse our always growing selection of caps, scarves, hats and pillows in the area outside of the Boutique. Dozens of volunteers sew and create these items especially for you. The stock changes according to the season and all of these items are free to our patients.
We are not the only resource for wigs in the Amarillo area. American Cancer Society also provides wigs at no charge. "Merle Norman" at 2628 Wolflin Avenue, has a large selection of wigs for purchase and will offer wig-care advice and assistance (regardless of where you receive or purchase your wig) at no charge to Harrington Cancer Center patients. We do not stock or sell wig-care supplies, but they can be found at Sally Beauty Supply, Merle Norman, Wal-Mart and Walgreens among other stores.
Thank you to our donor and volunteers
Harrington would like to say a special "Thank You" to Circle of Friends, Junior League, Merle Norman and our many dedicated volunteers who help make the Patient Boutique a wonderful service for our patients.
