The HAIR TO SHARE FOUNDATION makes a positive difference in the lives of those who are experiencing the dual trauma of serious illness and sudden, medically induced hair loss.
We provide funds for new, custom-fitted wigs for children and adults who not only are battling frightening illnesses, but also are fighting to present a brave, confident appearance to the world.
How can you put your best face forward and elicit encouragement from family, friends and co-workers when you’re wearing an ill-fitting, artificial-looking wig or no wig at all?
Yet that is what many patients must deal with if they lack the insurance coverage or financial resources to pay for a proper wig – and gain the self-esteem boost it provides.
That’s where we come in. For those in need, HAIR TO SHARE FOUNDATION covers the expense of a professionally fitted wig and all associated wig care products, education and support.
With assistance and support from the HAIR TO SHARE FOUNDATION, clients feel a renewed self-confidence and a sense that the community is behind them in their fight.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation serving children and adults across central New Jersey. We operate under the direction of the HAIR TO SHARE FOUNDATION board of six professionals, together with the help of community volunteers.
Contact us to learn more about how you can help by referring someone in need, or by volunteering or donating.

Rose Esposito was diagnosed with lung cancer in Jan 2018 - she was fitted at a
compassionate vendor "Splitenz Salon Studio" for a wig and services which were funded
by the Hair to Share Foundation. The cost associated for the wig would have been a true
financial burden for Rose during that time. Rose felt the wig helped with her
confidence and was able to attend her first granddaughters bridal shower and wedding.
Our Hair to Share Foundation mission to help recipients with funding for wigs and
services helped Rose Esposito function in her "new normal life".
*Rose passed away in Feb 2019

The impetus for the HAIR TO SHARE FOUNDATION grew from founder Zee Entrabartolo’s experience with her mother-in-law’s cancer diagnosis. Zee discovered that, among the many life changes that accompany cancer, for the majority of patients, the most devastating is hair loss.
Many medical issues can cause sudden hair loss, chief among them chemotherapy. Hair loss from chemotherapy occurs in about 70% of cancer patients.Learn More
