It’s Northwest Hair Restoration’s 10 year anniversary and we want to celebrate by giving back to the communities that have supported us. Over the last decade NW Hair team members have donated their time and financial resources to the following local and national charities/nonprofit organizations:
- American Cancer Society
- American Heart Association
- Northwest Harvest food bank
- Operation Restore
- Jude Children’s Research Hospital
- Union Gospel Mission
- Young Life Pancake Breakfast
To honor our 10th anniversary, for every person who has a surgical hair restoration procedure at NW Hair in the months of July – September, we will make a $250 contribution in their name to our newest nonprofit organization: the Wildland Firefighter Foundation. This foundation is near and dear to our patient Daniel Lyon who sustained burns over 70% of his body while fighting the Twisp wildfire in eastern Washington state in 2015. The Wildland Firefighter Foundation provides financial and other forms of assistance to the families of firefighters killed in the line of duty and to injured firefighters and their families. As a recipient of their support, Daniel is excited to increase public awareness of the vital and important humanitarian work the Wildland Firefighter Foundation performs.
We met Daniel in the summer of 2018 as a referral from Operation Restore, a nonprofit organized by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) in 2004 that enables patients suffering from hair loss due to disease or trauma to undergo hair restoration treatment. Now 3 years into his long recovery, Daniel was ready was to focus on the hair loss caused by his burns. Physicians like Dr. Robert Niedbalski of Northwest Hair Restoration volunteer their services to perform the surgeries and Operation Restore covers the cost of travel, lodging, food and other expenses. With the help of Operation Restore, Northwest Hair Restoration will perform a series of surgeries to recreate Daniel’s sideburns, eyebrows, and redistribute hair into the burned areas of his scalp.
Help Northwest Hair Restoration celebrate our 10th anniversary by participating in this Community Give Back event. Our goal is to donate a total of $10,000 by the end of September. This year’s wildfire season is predicted to be severe and the Wildland Firefighter Foundation will need all the resources it can muster. Help us help the brave men and women who put themselves in harm’s way for all of us.
