One Wig Stand is non-profit organization based in Lebanon dedicated to improving the lives of women and families experiencing the hardships of breast cancer. One Wig Stand takes a hands-on approach to increasing awareness about a disease among young women while also providing support for breast cancer patients through its engaging campaigns.
Our work also focuses on developing projects that adapt to the local culture so as to encourage early detection, eliminate the taboo (still) attached to the disease in our part of the world and, ultimately, improve the quality of life for those diagnosed with breast cancer.
Our mission includes:

Reducing the disease’s stigma by educating the public about its symptoms, the importance of early detection and through sharing the advice of others, including that of breast cancer survivors themselves and their families.
Building a social support network for women with breast cancer in the Middle East through diverse media of communication.
Cooperating with other breast cancer-related organizations or initiatives, regionally and/or internationally.
Educating young women about the importance of early detection, self-check exams, routine gynecological visits, imaging studies and other preventative methods.
Providing women diagnosed with breast cancer, as well as their families, with an outlet to share their experiences and receive support from others in the community.
Organizing and participating in public breast cancer awareness campaigns supporting the cause.
Acting as a resource mediator about the disease, such as, but not limited to, referrals to medical specialists and other facilities to meet the needs of breast cancer patients and survivors.
Supporting on-going and future research towards a better understanding, and eventually, a cure for the disease.

One Wig Stand is committed to supporting, assisting and providing any other form of social service that further promotes this cause and fulfills its mission.
