Hair Club for Kids® Offers Children Free Hair Restoration Services
Hair Club, through its charitable foundation Hair Club for Kids, has helped improve the lives of children suffering from hair loss. Hair Club for Kids was founded in 1992 as a non-profit organization to provide free hair restoration services for children ages 6-17 experiencing hair loss from disease or illness. Hair Club for Kids can be accessed through 1-800-HAIR CLUB or through the Hair Club for Kids Hotline at 1-800-269-7384.
A recent participant, 13-year old Jeana Turner, had this to say about her experience at Hair Club for Kids:
"My hair began to fall out in July 2004. I wore a wig. I felt alone and thought that no one would want to be my friend if they knew. People teased me and spread rumors. Then I found out about Hair Club, made an appointment and 6 weeks later I had my new hair. I am as happy as can be. All I can say is: Thank you, Hair Club."
