Chicago nurse helps pediatric cancer patients afford wigs
Chicago pediatric oncology nurse Rebecca Boumstein started the nonprofit Hair For You Foundation to help children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy treatments afford to buy wigs. She was inspired to create the foundation by her own battle with cancer as a teen, when her biggest fear was losing her hair.
