Purchasing Wellspring salon services and retail products is a way to help
cancer patients. Your purchases allow us to provide cancer patients with

We offer free personally-fitted new wigs for patients who do not have insurance
coverage to pay for a new wig, meet financial need criteria and have a
doctor’s order. This program is funded by the Winchester Medical
Center Foundation. We also have gently-used refurbished wigs available
for patients free of charge.
Wellspring offers a care bag to all cancer patients, compliments of the
Winchester Medical Center Foundation. The bag contains items to help patients
with their journey through treatment. Patients should bring the coupon
they receive from their doctor's office to Wellspring to pick up their
complimentary care bag.
