About the solution

Her purpose is to make sure women suffering from breast cancer and alopecia areata are always feeling and looking their best self.

Johnson and others stylists in the salon soon started making wigs for women who are going through cancer, chemo and radiation therapy. Johnson says cancer is not a death sentence.
"Going through chemo and being a survivor you know how it feels when you have to deal with the health issues, the hair loss and being sick," Johnson said. "You want to be able to look in the mirror and see yourself and still feel beautiful while you're going through the whole process."

In honor of breast cancer awareness month, Purpose and Passion will be giving away one free wig Monday at 11:30 a.m. to a cancer patient currently going through treatments. Johnson says people can nomination though the salon's Facebook page.

If you win the contest, Johnson makes the wigs on a daily basis. They can range in price from $200 and more. Purpose and Passion are willing to file insurance claims. But women should check with their insurance company to see if it's possible they'll cover the costs of the wig.
