Winchester – Marilyne Kelly likes to give back. She has been supporting women with cancer through her business, volunteer work and as a mastectomy prosthetic fitter. Now she is donating supplies to the Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) chemotherapy program.
Marilyne is temporarily closing her business – Marilyne’s Wigs N Things – and has generously donated some of her stock for WDMH’s chemotherapy patients and others in the community who can benefit from these supplies. The donation includes wigs, turbans, bangs for turbans, mastectomy prosthetics, surgical bras, bathing suits, and wig care products.
“Not everyone has insurance,” explains Marilyne. “Some people have to choose between a wig and putting food on the table. I started my business to offer quality wigs so people wouldn’t have to choose. My goal is to help women look and feel better during their cancer journey. That’s why I chose to donate a portion of my inventory to WDMH.”
Marilyne is an esthetician, hair dresser, mastectomy fitter and hairstyling and esthetics instructor. “Marilyne has been an avid volunteer for the breast cancer population, having donated her time and expertise at the Look Good Feel Better sessions. We are grateful for her generosity,” notes Jackie MacMillan, Chemotherapy Team Leader.
