Learning you have cancer can be shocking and traumatic. It also can cause insecurities about body image—one of which for women may be hair loss, a side effect of chemotherapy. Getting a nice wig can ease concerns, but for many it is too expensive, not covered by insurance and may not be frequently used.

Today's guests sought to solve this problem by founding The Wig Exchange—an organization that provides high-quality wigs to women undergoing chemotherapy through donations from cancer survivors and their families looking to offer support to others.
