Recipient Profile

Corinne donates her hair to
World of Wigs
Neal plans to use her hair to begin a campaign to raise money and collect more gray hair to create a wig for a 68-year-old woman at her church who recently lost her hair to cancer. She said a handful of friends have already contacted her, saying they are beginning to grow their hair to help make the wig.

A cancer survivor herself, Neal had originally wanted to donate her hair to Locks of Love but was told the hair-donation organization provides wigs for children and does not accept gray hair. Calling that "discrimination against the Grannies and Grandpas,'' she has struck out on her own to provide a gray wig for her friend.

Neal began to grow her hair long three years ago when she was diagnosed with melanoma on her left arm. The cancer was removed without treatment that would have caused her to lose her hair. She said he felt lucky to still have her hair and was inspired to help others.

But when she researched hair donations, she was told that organizations that give wigs to cancer patients such as Locks of Love and Pantene Beautiful Lengths do not accept gray hair.

"My thought was, 'Hey, we are left out,'" Neal said in a previous interview. "There shouldn't be any discrimination."

I have had long gray hair most of my life (I'm 52), and for health reasons I cannot take care of it anymore. I am donating a large part of how I am known, "The old hippie with the long, beautiful gray hair". I am sending it with joy knowing someone more deserving than me will receive it with much love attached.
 Diane B - Jan 09, 2009

I am a CANCER SURVIVOR and have lost my hair twice. I know you must be a great person to do this. I admire you!
 Mary C - Aug 29, 2008

Corinne, I am passing this note to you. What a great gal Paula is! I spoke to you (Renee) in early April after receiving a copy of the spotlight article on Corinne Neal in the OC register from a friend of mine who works at the paper ( Karen ). Please accept the enclosed hair donation and check from me for the fund. You're doing a great service and I'm happy to provide my help to further the cause. I intend to grow my hair out again & will make another hair donation in 8 - 10 months.
 Paula K - Jun 17, 2008

Dear Corinne, My name is Francine and I am from Kingston, Jamaica. I am 37 and have prematurely greying curly hair. I am planning to cut my hair short for the summer and would like to donate my hair to your wig fund. Kind regards.
