Give Yourself to Others
Since 2010, CrossTalk has partnered with the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL) – affiliated to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital , the regional leader in pediatric cancer treatment and full support to young patients: through supplying them with natural hair which was then professionally woven into wigs for the patients who wanted it.
The CCCL currently cares for 300 patients from few days old until 18 years and provides them with the best cancer treatment without any cost to their parents; and with an average cure rate of 80%. Therefore, the CCCL only relies on donations to fulfill its mission.
With the constant growing awareness and psychosocial support at the CCCL, most young patients are not requesting wigs when they lose their hair due to treatment. Nevertheless, whenever needed CrossTalk still provides the CCCL with the needed hair.
