A few weeks ago, I received a note from one of our wholesale customers, Jeri Millard, and wanted share part of it with our readers. We all enjoy our work but sometimes don't realize the effect it has on others, and this was an excellent reminder for me.

Jeri Millard runs a shop in Jacksonville, FL called In the Pink that provides support for cancer patients, including specialty wigs for chemo patients when treatment side effects take their hair. Jeri recently supplied a wig to 12-year-old Kessia, who lives in Costa Rica and is currently battling cancer. Kessia had beautiful, waist long hair, and after her first chemo session, lost it all. Predictably, she felt "different" and did not want to go out in public without hair.

With the help of Jeri and others, Kessia now owns a wig, scarf and wig stand. After receiving her wig, Kessia was thrilled and feeling optimistic about her second treatment.

Jim, who owns a coffee plantation in Costa Rica and recently received a visit from Kessia and her family, writes to Jeri:

The little girl is very optimistic and goes for her second chemo treatment soon, the second of ten. The doctors keep Kessia in the hospital for five days with each chemo treatment. You can see the smile and optimism in the little girls face. It is hard to guess what is going through her mother's mind. Her face though has an unmistakable message. ..She will endure the hell of seeing her flesh and blood go through the rigors and cruel side effects of chemo.The little girl is very optimistic and goes for her second chemo treatment soon, the second of ten.

I know miracles happen, but it is my guess that she will join Angel Baba (a friend of his who died of cancer) in heaven in the near future. I sincerely hope that I am wrong. This experience was a moving one for me. It served to reinforce the importance of putting things in perspective. Most things in life that aggravate us or cause us momentary discomfort are really nothing and insignificant, when you compare them to what Baba went through, and what Kessia is going through.

WigSuperstore.com is proud to have contributed in some way to this child’s recovery and optimism as she completes her treatment. Thank you for sharing this with me Jeri it is inspirational.
