Wigs for cancer patients stolen from Ichilov hospital

Ichilov Medical Center says multiple wigs intended for use by female cancer patients were stolen from from storage.

It is not yet clear how many wigs were taken, but it appears the number is at least 10. Each wig can be worth tens of thousands of shekels.

The hospital says a patient who went to take a wig from the room where they were kept found that all had disappeared.

“We never imagined a situation where wigs donated for cancer patients from recovered patients would disappear,” Prof. Ido Wolf, head of the Oncological Department, tells Channel 12.
