Thanks for the query

I dont think this is a good portal for wigs, any wig that will suit her face a ok. Why dont u take her along to choose one. Chemotherapy has a lot of side effects and please discuss it with your doctor as i dont know what the cancer is and what chemo she is receiving
Have a healthy living
