Transitions International Group Presented a Prosthetic Hair Replacement to a Burn Survivor

Millbrae, California (PressExposure) April 27, 2013 -- Transitions International Group along with their local affiliate, New Look Institute of San Jose presented a unique prosthetic hair replacement to a nineteen year old burn survivor named Faith Tom at their bi-annual meeting held in San Francisco. The elite group of hair restoration specialists has expertise in both men's and women's hair replacement. Faith is a victim who was tragically burned at the age of five. It is unfortunate that she had to grow up without hair and much of her scalp.

Faith has been actively a part of Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation (AARBF), the California-based nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing burns and fires. The foundation attempts to improve the quality of life for burn incident survivors. The incident not only left her without her hair, but also her right hand. As her hand was amputated due to severe burns, the regular wigs were unsuitable for her. She is now thankful to the Transitions International Group that designed a custom wig for her. The convenience of putting them with her left hand alone makes her life easier.

The wig is not only designed to improve her appearance, but also the overall quality of life. It fits her comfortably and securely. This customized wig accommodates her scalp bandages and provides her additional protection from the accidental bumps. AARBF gave this young lady an opportunity to be a part of recreational activities for burn injured children. She is a part of the week long residential summer camping program named Champ Camp which is for child burn survivors of the ages five to sixteen.

Jennifer Radics, Executive Director for the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation stated that she was looking forward for an opportunity to help Faith. She genuinely wanted to help her build confidence and self-esteem to lead a great life. She expressed her gratitude to Transitions International Group for not just giving Faith the hair, but also confidence. It is through the Reallusions Hair for Women division that the company accomplished the task.

Faith Tom is just one among the people who has benefited from the services of Transitions International Group and New Look Institute. They provide a range of men's hair replacement too. Women, men, and children who are suffering from hair loss are candidates for one or more solutions provided by the company.

Every six months, the members of the group gather to share valuable information with each other. They learn the latest techniques in the industry and discuss on how to provide better professional help for their clients. At each of the meetings, a contribution to charity is made.
