I have been given the special opportunity to make a difference in a woman’s life during a time when she needs all the self-confidence and courage that she can muster.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2014
Wigs by Patti’s Pearls, an online store that specializes in providing wigs for women with cancer and for those who suffer from medical hair loss, will be giving away 14 wigs in 14 days during the month of February to patients in need. Owner Patti Joyce is kicking off her ‘Love is in the Hair’ journey to donate wigs in the spirit of good will and to celebrate the surviving and thriving women in the community.
“As a Woman, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, my motto has always been the old southern adage, ‘Get Up, Suit Up, and Show Up.’ Several years ago, that motto was tested as I received one of the greatest blessings of my life. I was diagnosed with colon cancer. The resultant operations, chemotherapy, various treatments and tests and the uphill battle to "Surviving and Thriving” were incredibly trying. But they also gave me the opportunity to create good through Wigs by Patti’s Pearls,” said Joyce.
Joyce turned her personal battle into an admirable service.
“For any patient, losing hair can be one of the most emotionally traumatic aspects of a woman’s treatment. I have been given the special opportunity to make a difference in a woman’s life during a time when she needs all the self-confidence and courage that she can muster,” she said.
Over the course of the next 14 days, Joyce will be providing 14 wigs to patients at the hospital and at her home. Joyce hopes this journey will recognize the beautiful women and raise awareness in the community.

Joyce asks that if anyone feels inspired by her actions to please make a donation to Rady Children’s Hospital.
