For people whose physical appearance and self-image are affected during
treatment and recovery, Wellspring is a one-stop location for unique and
practical items such as natural skin and hair care products, wigs and
wig accessories, turbans, caps, hats and scarves. Gifts to lift spirits
or show support are also available.
Salon services are free to patients during treatments, including wig fitting,
haircuts, skincare and makeup tips. Our licensed professionals are experienced
and trained to work with those who need help with the changes they may
experience during their treatments.
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.
Wellspring has been designed to create a sense of peace and serenity.
Those who need a few minutes of quiet can seek out the meditation space
and an area to sit and relax with a cup of tea.
Financial support for Wellspring is provided by the Winchester Medical
