LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) - For October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Follea Inc., the leading designer of high-quality, natural European wigs and hairpieces, is hosting a Breast Cancer Wig Giveaway on Facebook, beginning October 15. Participants can create a video about their personal journey with breast cancer or a friend or family member of a woman with breast cancer can share how their loved one who has cancer inspires them. The grand prize winner can choose either the Follea Gripper®-2 Sport or the Gripper®-2 Cool, from Follea's innovative and luxurious 2012 Gripper-2 Collection. The grand prize winner will select the wig that best suits her needs, from one of five standard sizes and available standard color and length specifications. Five second place winners will receive Tres Chic MM6 wigs and 50 third place winners will receive one of Follea's super-soft bamboo sleep caps.
"We cannot yet make the tragedy of breast cancer go away, but we can at least help those who are fighting their way through a period of treatment smile again when they look in the mirror," says President of Follea Michael Leigh.

Follea serves women who may be losing their hair due to chemotherapy, Alopecia Areata, lupus, and other medical conditions that can cause partial or total hair loss. The Gripper-2 wig was created with a breathable construction, a natural lace-front hairline and medical grade silicone tabs, which keeps the wig securely in place and minimizes the risk of adverse skin reactions for daily wig wearers.
The company has ICARe representatives and ICARe salons around the world, offering personalized care for those who need assistance selecting a wig or hairpiece. Women can also visit a Follea Certified Hair Replacement Atelier or the Beverly Hills headquarters for specialized assistance with styling, cutting, and coloring their Follea wig.
