Our mission is to provide a private and serene atmosphere where women can come to select a free wig, receive complementary salon services, and learn makeup application, all while surviving through the effects of cancer treatments. A woman’s hair is her crown and glory and losing that esteem can be very painful OR it can be a celebrated experience – marking the beginning of a beautiful, new you! BBBC aims to assist in the rebuilding of self-confidence and self-esteem during this sensitive period. Wigs and hair extensions have always been astaple for women when it comes to hair loss. We take it one step further by customizing your choice of wig with a better fit, cut or trim, and style. The goal of Beauty Beyond Breast Cancer is to inform, assist, motivate, and inspire women.
Who Are We
Beauty Beyond Breast Cancer, a 501(c)3 organization, was founded in 2013 by Venita Graves, a Houston renowned hairstylist, salon owner, and proud breast cancer survivor since 2003.
BBBC was launched in an effort to meet a need in our community to provide free wigs and salon services to women who have lost their hair due to various cancer fighting treatments. As our organization thrives, it is our intent and purpose to branch outside of the city of Houston and assist women all over the world!
The flagship program of BBBC is our on-going Wig Drive which allows us to receive wig donations from all around the city. Those donations are then given to cancer centers and patients in and around the city of Houston and throughout the United States of America.
During the month of October, we hold our Pink Ribbon Campaign, a movement to empower and educate women about breast health awareness.
