I understand I could have and maybe should have put this in the classified, but I want all to see.
If there are any chemo patients in St. Thomas in need of wigs, I have a few that I would like to donate instead of throw away. I also have one bag of Depends for female, size small that I can't bring myself to throw away either.
Please call me IF you fit the bill for these items. The wigs are not for play, they are for someone who NEEDS them desperately! God knows I have spent a LOT of money on them over the last 9 months! God, I'm crying while I write this.

hi Sherri

just wanted to say, you're a good person to offer these items to people in need. I hope all is well with you or your loved one now!!! You might also look into the freecycle group on yahoo, to reach more people.

Sherri, you can try to contact the The Charlotte Kimelman Cancer Institute
775-5433 ext. 8200

Or the American Cancer Society 775-5373

Or Cancer Support VI 715-5806

Maybe they can steer you in the right direction to whom you can donate the wigs to, where the wigs can be used by someone who is in need of them.

Hope all is good!

Thanks for your best wishes everyone, we'll take them! Right now my Daughter is in remission, but this type of cancer is expected to resurface. Just praying we can get a few years before it does. She went through chemo here in St. Thomas instead of the states as I wanted her home where she was born and raised so I have all of the numbers above. Thanks though, I appreciate your time and efforts! 🙂
The wigs are not new in box, though they were not used, but tried on. They can't pass on personal items like that. I used to be a La Leche League leader here in St. Thomas and again, I could not pass on breast pumps to those who needed them.
I did NOT know the relay for life was this weekend though, so maybe I can find something out there.
Thank you!
