Playing How a Good Wig Can Transform a Cancer Victim’s Life

The Doctors are joined by breast cancer survivor Denise Albert, a mom of two and co-founder of The Moms, and Wigs & Wishes nonprofit creator Martino Cartier to share how something as simple as a good wig can drastically change a cancer victim's life.

Denise is thankfully now cancer-free but is still dealing with the effects of the disease on her hair and she still wears a wig. She explains her hair grew back different and she says it is fine and curly at the same time, saying, "It's just not the hair I like."

Martino's organization provides free wigs for women with cancer and tells Dr. Ian Smith he saw the need to help people after a loved one battling cancer could not find a wig that didn't look like a wig. What started in his hometown, now is worldwide and Wigs & Wishes provides around 25,000 wigs each year.
