Debra Brown came to Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana as a client and now volunteers to help CSNI find new supplies. During her cancer journey, she wanted to boost her spirits and decided to borrow a wig from CSNI’s wig salon. She was surprised when she discovered that the salon had only two wigs for African American women. Debra took the initiative and with the approval of Cancer Services, she asked area churches and friends to donate any wigs. So far, she has collected 31, but she hopes to collect 100 in all.
Debra works as a computer coordinator at the Fort Wayne Urban League. She also triumphed over her bout of cancer.
