Abington Breast Cancer Survivor and Salon Owner Donates Wigs to Women in Need

By

Myisha Stratton has always had a passion for hair, going back to her childhood and through her teen years. She then opened her own salon called D.D. Daughters Lace Wig Beautique, reports Matteo Iadonisi for 6abc.

When she had opened, she found that she had clients that had cancer.

“I was helping them feel comfortable with their hair loss,” she said. “We would shave their hair off. We would give them the same look that they had.”

She was aiming to use wig-styling to create natural, personal looks for her cleints, especially those undergoing cancer treatments like chemotherapy.

“At the age of 20, I had spots of alopecia. And then I got diagnosed with breast cancer at 35,” Myisha Stratton said. “So, those same clients helped me feel comfortable.”

One client even reached out to Stratton with a chemo care package, full of healthcare products set to help with changes that come to a woman’s body during cancer treatments.

“It helped me so much,” she said. “So, ever since I have been in remission, I give out boxes to women patients at Fox Chase Cancer Center.” She makes boxes for male and female patients plus a free wig voucher.

D.D. Daughters Lace Wig Beautique is located within the MY SALON suite in Abington, Pennsylvania.
