Our trained Cancer Resource Center secretary is available to help you with your resource needs. She is stationed in the library and is happy to assist you with the boutique and the library. She can also put you in touch with the navigation team to further meet your needs.
Cheyenne Regional’s Boutique provides free services for our cancer patients. We have wigs, hats and scarves available for patients who are losing their hair as a result of treatment. These are provided free-of-charge by grants received from Cheyenne Regional Foundation and outside sources including community businesses.
Our boutique has a spa-like setting in which trained staff and volunteers help you find the perfect wig or head covering, while making you feel pampered. Four beauty stations allow for more than one person to try on accessories at a time. We have different colors, styles and lengths of wigs available to suit your personality.
We also have free breast prostheses and mastectomy bras for women who are uninsured or under-insured and unable to afford the cost of these garments. Most insurance providers do pay for prostheses and bras, so please check with your insurance carrier for your particular coverage. Our volunteers and staff are trained and prepared to assist you in getting the proper fit for your needs.
Cancer Resource Reference Library (Empowerment Library)
When a person receives a cancer diagnosis, he or she typically has so many questions that it may be hard to know where to begin. Cheyenne Regional Cancer Center has a well-stocked library of cancer references and resources that can help to educate you about the disease. We also have a number of reference materials that cover a multitude of subjects from nutrition and exercise to spiritual and inspirational books. We’ve recently added a ‘Just for Fun’ section to the library with fiction books and other interesting, mind-relaxing reads. These materials can be checked out to you so that you can take them home to read.
Computers and printers are available for you to for research reliable cancer sites on the internet. Our American Cancer Society hospital volunteers will be happy to help you find the appropriate sources for the information that you need.
