In the Locks Of Love program, are the wigs free for patients, especially kids with leukemia?

Locks of Love is a Lake Worth nonprofit group that provides hairpieces to poor children with medical hair loss. They are free, or at reduced cost. The charity accepts donated hair of 10 inches or longer and creates custom-fitted hair prosthetics. The group has helped more than 2, 000 children. See www.locksoflove.org. For women's wigs, see www.beautifullengths.com.
