Beauty & Boutique Services for Santa Barbara Cancer Patients

Life during and after treatment can leave many cancer patients feeling unlike themselves due to hair loss, physical alterations, changes in texture of the skin and other side effects. The Ridley-Tree Cancer Center is proud to be able to offer cancer patients beauty services free of charge for those affected by chemotherapy and treatment, including haircuts, wig, hats and prosthesis. This wonderful program is available to patients because of generous donations and volunteered time by our community.
