Chemotherapy, Trichotillomania, Alopecia Areata, thyroid gland; there are many reasons for hair loss or thinning, and now a compassionate business in Fredericksburg to help.
Denise Webster spent years hiding because of hair loss. Then came a life-changing experience, which motivated her and her daughter to open TrichWig Co., a Fredericksburg boutique dedicated to helping others. "My mom has suffered from Trichotillomania, a hair pulling disorder, for over 40 years," Heather Lease, Denise's daughter, said. "She had tried every resource under the sun to no avail, until one day she got the courage to try a wig." The experience changed her life. "It's helping me to heal," Denise said. The mother-daughter team opened TrichWig Co. at 1008 Sophia St. "Women should be able to feel good about themselves," Denise said. "Heather and I set out to create a place in our community for others to have this same experience…

Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center embarked on a mailing campaign to convince Fredericksburg residents to force change so that they can choose to which hospital they want an ambulance to deliver them.

"You should have the right to choose," the flier states in bold blue letters at the top. But the big question is could such a change in policy potentially put city residents at risk? Fredericksburg Fire Department spokesman Mike Jones said the policy is to take city patients to the closest hospital and that is Mary Washington Hospital.
