Regina, a mom and grandma, a hairstylist, cosmetology instructor, hair replacement specialist and former salon owner, brings over 30 years of experience.
Regina started this non-profit organization after her niece, Sarah, a 28-year survivor, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the tender age of three. She underwent chemotherapy for five years.
During Sarah’s treatment, she had seen so many children that either didn’t have hair or were wearing outdated synthetic wigs. Being in the hair industry, Regina knew that hair pieces were very expensive and most families could not afford human hair. She recognized a strong need to provide children who have medically related hair loss with human hair replacements. Throughout the years Regina’s dream evolved into a mission.
Giving was always an important part of her life and after her niece’s treatment it was all about seeing how she could use her own talent and experience to give back. She has taken it as her personal mission to “Cover Young Heads to Heal Young Hearts”.
Since opening in 2000, CWHL has helped thousands of children with hair loss at no cost to the family.
