To whom it may concern: 

I received a diagnosis of Stage IV breast cancer in February 2008.  As a young (45) and newly graduated nurse my concerns about being able to live, play and continue to work were swept aside by the encouragement and wonderful wig I obtained from Jennifer Fenninger at Strands.

I am able to be a nurse and keep the focus on my patient instead of me. I am able to go shopping, dancing and to church without getting a second glance from anyone. Although bald is beautiful, it helps to have a nice head of hair to keep the attention where it belongs – either on me the person, or me the nurse. 

I would have been unable to feel this confident about myself without Jennifer’s help, concern and advice.  I would certainly recommend her to anyone seeking that special individualized care and support that we cancer patients need.
