Joyce is an accredited wig fitter and wig stylist with the Little Princess Trust in the UK since 2015
The LPT provide real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people up to the age of 24 who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other hair loss condition. These wigs are made from donated hair.
Joyce will help you to select a wig which matches as closely as possible to your natural hair. As it is real hair, the wig can be cut, curled, or straightened to recreate your individual look.
This is all done in the Wigworld studio by Joyce O Carroll. Joyce has her own hair loss through alopecia and wears a wig. She is a hairdresser and a qualified wig technician and trained in the art of cutting and styling wigs
The Little Princess Trust story…..
The Little Princess Trust has helps children and young adults. It was established in 2006 by the parents of Hannah Tarplee, their friends and Hereford Cathedral Junior School.
In 2004 Hannah was diagnosed with a Wilms tumour. Hannah loved her hair and losing it was very traumatic for her. Her parents, Wendy and Simon, searched high and low to find a wig suitable for Hannah, during her treatment. When they found one, it had a hugely positive effect on Hannah.
Tragically, Hannah passed away in 2005 and with so many kind offers of financial and practical help, Wendy and Simon felt the most fitting tribute would be to launch a charity dedicated to providing real hair wigs for children and young people.
Since then, the LPT have provided thousands of real hair wigs to sick children and young people, aged up to 24 years across the UK and Ireland. We are now in the early stages of offering our service in other areas of Europe and beyond.
In 2016, thanks to the huge efforts of our fundraisers and corporate supporters, they were able to start funding pioneering academics and institutions leading the way in researching new and better treatments for all paediatric cancers. An area where there is so much work which desperately needs investment. The Little Princess Trust has committed more than £15million across almost 80 projects covering a range of childhood cancers.
The Little Princess Trust are striving to improve patient outcomes through access to new treatments through clinical trials as well as improving existing treatments. They are working incredibly hard to identify innovative and impactful ways to improve survival and reduce the effects of treatment. Their mission is to invest in the right areas to fill some of these funding gaps.
