Inspiration! Do You Have Interest? Are You Asking Yourself, What Can I Do?
     

My name is George Vanberg from Stony Plain, Alberta.

 

After being close to family, friends and co-workers who have battled cancer, reading articles of patients who required wigs while taking therapy, and how much it meant to them to have a wig during such a difficult time, I was inspired in 2008 to start this website and grow my hair out to donate for a wig.

 

In doing so, my hopes are to bring awareness to the fight for cancer encourage others to grow and donate their hair, and raise funds where possible for support and research.

 

This is a project that has been approved by The Alberta Cancer Foundation, and is officially named "Hair 4 Cancer".

 

Inspiration came from two ladies, both of whom have given their

permission to include their names here.

 

One, being my sister Vi Osadchuk, second is a very special friend, Ernestine Lundman. Both are cancer survivors.

 

And yes, they both accepted a wig during their times of treatment.

 

Therefore, the start of this site is dedicated to both of these two ladies.

 

My hopes are that this web site and this named project will not be about me or my hair, but become a strong focus that will grow in support for cancer in Alberta and continue well beyond March of 2010.

 

And, for others to be inspired to grow hair to donate for much needed wigs, for awareness, possible fundraising for support and research.
