Cancer is a horrible disease that can often negatively affect so many areas of the lives of those that experience it – both physically and mentally. For children, the experience of cancer may be even worse as their small, though mighty, bodies have to fight even harder to endure the symptoms of their illness as well as possible symptoms of their treatments. As we’re sure you know, the most common and notable side effect of cancer treatment is hair loss and for a child, this can be an especially uncomfortable experience.
While our agency believes that all children are beautiful, even those rockin’ the side effects of their courageous battle with a deadly disease, we also believe in supporting their interests to feel as “normal” as possible. Thankfully, Maggie’s Wigs4Kids of Michigan exists in our community to provide “kids 3-18 new hair, new hope, and a chance to be themselves.” Through their efforts, they’ve already helped children from 50 Michigan counties and they work directly with all 8 hospitals that provide pediatric oncology services!
When cancer treatment costs can already be high, an organization like Maggie’s Wigs4Kids of Michigan is a true gift to those who need it most. That’s why McGovern Agency has chosen to bring awareness to their great efforts by committing to donate $10 to their organization, when you forego your gift card, for every recommendation you send our way that receives a no-obligation quote so that they may continue their great mission! Together, we can positively impact our community in a way that allows our most vulnerable to thrive. So, what do you say? Let’s get started!
