Links for Life joins The Breast Center at The Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center (CBCC) in opening their Wig Boutique to help hundreds of cancer patients in need of wigs during cancer treatment.   Cancer survivors, CBCC doctors, Links for Life board members, and Bakersfield Mayor Harvey Hall recently participated in a ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony for The Links for Life Wig Boutique located inside The CBCC Breast Center.

“The joint focus is on the whole person when it comes to cancer care and not on cancer alone,” says Dr. Ravi Patel, Founder and Managing Director at CBCC.  One of Dr. Patel’s patients and breast cancer survivor, Stana Bright, inspired him to partner with Links for Life to enhance the Wig Boutique service for the cancer patients.  The service is available to patients at no cost for the first two wigs.  Donations are welcome.

“It was a pleasure to work with the CBCC team to make this dream a reality,” says Jennifer Henry, Executive Director for Links for Life.
