Sometimes, female cancer patients get worried when they start to see their hair fall out due to the effects of chemotherapy. But one business in the Copper Country reaches out and helps those who are in need but in a very unique way. One year ago, Michelle Little-Geshel was at the Relay for Life event, set to take place this weekend, and was asked if she wanted her salon to be a wig bank and she agreed, wanting to be able to give back to the community but knowing little about what a wig bank is. One year later, her salon, located on Sharon Avenue in Houghton, is the only place in the Copper Country that offers this unique service. She is officially recognized by the American Cancer Society as well as many doctors in the area.
Little-Geshel added that the best way to take advantage of this service is to set up an appointment so that it will be easier to find the wig that you are looking for.
